    Make a feature of it if you can't conceal it...........

    It's obviously been exposed to water or hear at some point. Depending upon how warped it is you may be able to warm it with a hair dryer enough to get it to press down some.but you would need to figure a way to brace it for the day to make it stay.

    Basement+wavy paneling=moisture. If you were to rip that paneling off there would be black mold behind it. Be sure gutters are kept clean and any rainwater is channeled away from the house. Then buy a dehumidifier. There are some that can be directed to any handy drain. I had that problem and moved before I totally got it fixed. New owners were made aware.

    Pull it down and put up dry wall
