the latch probably needs to be lubricated. I would use white lithium grease, it will last longer than wd-40. if that doesn't do it, you may need the adjust the latch itself. it might have gotten loose and moved.

So I don't spend extra money should I just use wd40 to test that theory

If you have access to an air compressor I'd try blowing the thing out first, due to where it is located a lot of road dirt can get inside from water on the roads then lube it.

My buddy has a mini one, he does air brush shirts, think that is powerful enough?

Nope, then try a water nozzle on stream and wash out as much dirt as you can get then let dry for day or two then lube it.
