Take it to paintless dent repair and see if it's not too bad that they can fix it other then that you're going to have to go to a body shop.

there looks to be a crack in the paint. A hairline crack. No paintless dent removal will fix that. At best (and this with a long shot), the dent could be uncreased. But in more than likely cases, the paint will chip.

see if you can get your hand inside the trunk to see if you can use a flat object and push it back up?

i had something similar on my civic, not quite as bad tho. I was about to do it from the inside out using a ratchet wrapped in a towel. It didnt come out perfect but it looked better. If you want it perfect I would say take it to a body shop because in that location youre not really going to be able to just pop it out

i tried using a suction cup the metal is just too hard so i took it to a body shop and they said they would have to use bondo on it and re-paint it for $350. honestly i think the best way to tackle this is to just get a new trunk lid. hopefully i can find someone that is parting out a pwp tsx in my area.
