Skylight may be source of leak after roof repair

Q. I had a new roof put on in the early summer and now have leaking at a bottom interior corner of a skylight. I can’t see anything on the outside, except one shingle may not be snug against the frame. There is nothing above the skylight up to the ridge. The roofer is coming back this week. He seems surprised. I don’t think I want a caulking job here.
