Hi

It sounds like you may need to put a short straight edge over the offending fret and its neighbours to check that it hasn't worn too low.  If it has you may have to get a guitar tech to have a closer look at the instrument.  It may just need a fret dress or if it is really low (eg has been pushed down into the fret board by some "accident") the fret may need to be replaced.
