Question regarding interlocking pavers

Hello everyone, I just had a small question regarding interlocking pavers on a walkway that I've recently had paved at my home. Everything went according to plan with the steps and the walkway, but someone took a couple steps on a few pavers that didn't finish setting in, so right on the edge of a couple steps, there are a few pavers that are higher than the rest. So my question is, since the pavers that are uneven are now set in concrete, what would be the best method to level it all out? Any help would be appreciated, thanks.

As far as I know, interlocking pavers aren't set in concrete but are set in a sand base with a vibrating machine. If some are out of level, then that's not a very good paving job because they should almost feel like they're in concrete - but aren't.

Tap them back down with a rubber mallet.
