This usually means something has been slightly damaged on the lens system. It probably has some kind of impact. Also if sand or water gets inside the lens system this can happen as well.
You may think that this is normal wear and tear, I do not think so. Something causes errors like this. Dust, dirt, water, sand, or some kind of impact will cause this kind of thing.
To fix this may be harder than a person realizes on the surface.
It must be determined what is causing this in the first place.
Carefully examine the whole lens system when in and when out.

It is either bent or has grit and dirt in between the slides. Try using canned compressed air, such as you use to clean a computer keyboard with, to blow air between the slides. If that does not work, even though you will have to be very careful, while the lens cover is closed put a single drop of WD40 on the cover and spread it with a Qtip over the entire cover surface. Holding the camera, front facing down, try turning it on and off several times. If that frees the lens cover, turn the camera off and wipe the surface of the closed lens cover with a soft tissue to clean the WD40 from the surface. Make sure then that your lens is clean before using the camera. If the lens cover is bent, then none of this will work.
