Window won't close tight...

Window won't close tight...

I haven't opened this window for a long time - so I opened it this past weekend, and for some reason when I tried to close it it wouldn't close all the way. Upon closer inspection there is a plastic part that was sticking out the bottom on one side preventing it to close completely.

I could use a hammer to lightly tap upward to tap the part back up to close it. But if I open the window again this part comes out again.

What is this part? Is it broken on the inside?

Is it a catch to hold the window up? If so you may need to push it in when closing the window.
