I think the whole thing is the seal, so the whole part that snaps over the glow plug also seals the valve cover. I'd imagine salt and junk would dry out that rubber after a while...yes definitely try to snap it back in, maybe put some dielectric grease around the exposed rubber portion to keep it from dry rotting?? It wouldn't hurt to put some on the inside either... Hopefully you get lucky and it just came loose on you...
