Roof Shingle Buckling

I noticed today there is one shingle on the south facing side of my house that is buckled in the middle. There is only one that I can see, and I'm sure it was not there a couple of weeks ago. I have 5 vents on my roof, and I was told previously that I have plenty of vents. Could it be the 100+ degree days we've had this summer? If so will the shingle go back down when the weather cools, or should I call someone in to fix?

Most likely what you see is just a nail pop. If you carefully lift the tab, you will see a nail that has "popped" up and is holding it proud. Remove the nail and reinstall it an inch or so away under the tab.
Be careful on the roof.
