Help with ducting above water heater

I swapped out a 20year old water heater for a new one.
The new one is a bit taller and the vent piping wont align
any suggestions on how to fix the venting?

Welcome to the forums,

It doesn't look like a height issue as much as the water heater is no longer directly under the flue line. How come the two locations aren't the same ? Did you move the water heater ?
