need to shrink the area to tighten it up
we used to by heating small spots with oxy then hitting with hammer and dolly
long process, lots of spots

bugga actually as it looks like its about ready to paint
Though it's not a huge repair, just gotta be careful with the heat.

(will not mention that mine had the same on bloody both sides, and so i bogged and sanded.)

I’ve got a similar issue on mine.
It looks like big dents in a couple of spots, like your photo. I can push it up into the right shape but it’s like there is no guts to the roof and if I give it a tiny push from the outside it depresses again.
From the underside of the roof all the deadener has or is flaking off. I’m not sure if this also was meant to provide some extra rigidity to the roof.
Keen to hear others experiences or solutions.

The deadener flaking of is either irrelevant to the issue, or maybe the metal has moved enough underneath it that the more brittle deadener has lost its bond to the roof.
Either way, remove the deadener and re-apply a peel-and-stick type product after you've done your repairs, and before you put your headliner back in.
If the material is a little low and it doesn't stay in the convex position (it just springs back in when you tap it down), that is called "oil-canning" and it happens from that area being "bigger" than the area around it. So it wants to buckle out one way or the other. You want to shrink it, whether you use a torch or a shrinking disc etc.
This video below demonstrates one way to deal with it:

That deadening material has asbestos in it so tread appropriately.

I’ve seen a couple of posts on here about re doing the deadening. I’ll need to do some more research on that too. Seems there are a few varying recommendations/pit falls.
Point taken on the asbestos. Thanks, I’ll take care.
