Also if I tear the mat off, seems like I’d ruin it, but what kind of glue do I use and where to get it? It’s only loosened off up by the spindle. I’d rather just put glue in that area by sticking some in with a q-tip if that would work.

Sure, you can try to glue down the bulge area of the mat.
You will need to remove the platter as I posted, because you'll
need to put some weight on the mat.
You don't want to do that with the platter sitting on its bearing race.

You can use epoxy glue, but I've done just as well with Elmer's wood glue.
Acrylic super glues don't seem to work well with this rubber.

Give it 24 hours to dry under pressure of some books or such.

If the bulge won't stay down, you may have to remove the mat
and re-glue it, or buy a replacement from the Voice of Music.

You won't harm the mat if you use a thin putty knife and gently
pry it up around the circumference.
You are not to "tear the mat off" as you wrote.

You could also use contact cement like Weldwood under the mat.
Let's not jump to conclusions about the mat though.
Sharrier, as the record rotates how much does the record edge vary in its distance from the deck?
You know sometimes records get warped. Is the mat the reason the record isn't sitting flat?
How about showing a picture looking down on the mat without a record.
Another option, put another mat on top of the old one. It would help flatten the old mat and it will
raise the record so that it doesn't scrape.

Ok, I’m going to try to remove mat. How do you remove player? From above not from below I hope.

You need to reach the underside of the mounting board and flip the black colored fasteners that you took pictures of earlier in your posts. The studs have a "head" on them, the black fasteners are gripping the heads. The black piece has a slot that you slide the head along, at the end of the slot the piece can be flipped at 90 degrees so that it is parallel to the stud. Once it is flipped it will fit through the hole in the mounting board. Make sure all the wires are labeled and disconnected. Then the deck can be lifted off the mounting board. There should be at least two of those studs.

Tom, before I do that, I got some epoxy glue. Thought I would try to place it just in the inner area where it’s come undone. But this problem may be 2 issues with the mat and turn table not being level. Is there a way without having to take the whole thing out to maybe tighten up screws loose underneath that maybe why it’s unlevel?

That needle came with the cartridge, so as far as I know, it's correct. It is a NOS, and yes, it came from Voice of Music.
