It's unlikely that there has been enough collapse to cause a 3" loss of headroom without some other obvious evidence on the cabin top profile. The headroom may be 6'3" under the hatch, but not necessarily everywhere. Certainly not at the mast, as I recall. Still, your surveyor should be able to determine if this boat has a problem with the support block you mention. I have heard of this occuring before on the 36.
