It's a matter of spacing. Looks like you haven't spaced the measure. Do that first (you might want to turn on Automatic music spacing if you've turned it off). Then, in Document options / Grace notes, there's a setting controlling the space between the grace note and the main note.

You can also move the note manually with the special tools.

scorn,

Your screen shot displays a lock icon, telling that the system is locked.
And the spacing looks rather “tight”.
I suspect that you have squeezed too many measures into that system.

That could explain the problem with grace note spacing.

To fix,
- unlock the system (and Update Layout)
or
- keep the system locked, and use a smaller scaling percentage.
