Vinyl siding outside corner - leak?

hi all,

we recently installed vinyl siding - we noticed in heavy rain we are getting dripping water from this corner - I know there’s a channel in there but…. normal? Worrisome? There is fan fold behind the corners… thanks for the feedback.

Vinyl siding is not waterproof. It relies on the WRB or fanfold to shed any water that gets in. Looks like you could have used a kickout flashing on the shingles at the corner. Siding looks too tight to the roof too.
