Look for the class or id of the icon. Then add this to the CSS.

.classname {
  margin-top: 5px; /* Edit the pixels to your desired margin */

where to find the class or id of the icon? Embarrassed

View the source of your forum and look for the image. The class or id of the image should be there.

the class is icon xD
Just found it with chrome LOVE ELEMENT INSPECT!!!

More specific if other icon classes are in the forum.
dl.icon is the class
