Suit fit question

I recently tried on some slim cut off the rack suits and have a question on jacket fit. Across the shoulders was good, and so-so around the waist, though bordering on pulling at the top button. However when buttoned (top button only on a 2 button single breast) across the chest in line with the middle of the lapels, the jacket sat out from the chest with a distinct point in the fabric.

What in the cut is causing this, and can it be tailored to sit flat across the chest?
