Advice for moulding for stairs

I am in the process of putting quarter round molding next to the stairs. I should of taken a picture before I took the old molding off. The problem is that the wall bulges on the right side of the stairs (maybe its from the studs settling?) It is very solid. What I mean is that no matter how hard I push in, it does not budge at all. Any ideas how to address this issue? It does this on the upper right side of the stairs also.

Not much you can do without ripping out the sheet rock.
Really should be using base cap molding for a far better look.

It's probably not settled framing but lumber that has twisted some. As Joe stated you'd need to remove the drywall to assess the problem and what needs to be done to fix it .... probably more work than you'd want to get into.

You could remove a little material from the back of the quarter round to accommodate the bulge in the wall. Some moldings won't show as bad as others so that could also be an option.
