I can't identify the problem here. I know I have a couple of tris there and I know it's a bad practice, but I didn't see a way around it.

  • $\begingroup$ I can't say for certain from just a screenshot, but there may be two vertices in the same location, each connecting only two of the four edges at that location. Have you tried removing doubles? $\endgroup$ – user27640 Jul 26 '18 at 21:50
  • $\begingroup$ @DuaneDibbley Already checked for doubles :/ should I screenshot it from another angle? $\endgroup$ – Tin Vojnovic Jul 26 '18 at 21:59

The problem is that you have one long edge connecting the upper and lower vertices, as well as several shorter edges in the same place.

Select the long one, and remove it, and the problem will go away.

To select it, you may have to click several times, to alternate between the long one and one of the shorter ones. Once the long one is selected, remove it by pressing X followed by E.

  • $\begingroup$ Oooooooh... I was staring at my shape for ages trying to figure it out.. How did you notice it? Was it obvious and I just missed it? $\endgroup$ – Tin Vojnovic Jul 26 '18 at 22:49
  • $\begingroup$ I simply selected edges one by one and moved them slightly to see what remained and how things were connected. If things had been connected a bit differently, you might have had to rebuild some topology, but in this specific case, removing that edge was enough. $\endgroup$ – user27640 Jul 26 '18 at 22:57
