I have a cabinet door that won’t fully close anymore. I have kids so I suspect one of them applied some downward pressure on the door to cause this. The hinges are semi-concealed institutional hinges or half-surface hinges. Can I adjust the hinge somehow or do I need to replace it?

Welcome.
If you have a vise so you can secure the hinge and gently strighten the finals and hinge pin.

If the hinge is labeled, just order another, OR, use google image to identify.

It resembles an AMEROCK product, so, if there is a cabinet hrdw. near you.
 
In the photo it kind of looks like the pin is bent. They are usually soft and get bent easily.
You probably can drive the pin out and straighten it with a couple pair of pliers. Worth a try...

Best of Luck,
Paul

Don't know if this will be of use; but Rockler has cabinet hinges on sale this week.

They come in various finishes & styles- face mount, overlay, semi-concealed, etc.. A sample screen-shot is below. (These may not be the style that you need.)
