You have found a roofer, First what the inspector is talking about is on top of the starter course below the displayed shingle, yes. You need to do this during the heat of the day if there is no adhesive under the first displayed shingle.
If it IS held down wait, first thing one mourning before it gets hot, take a spatula (yea a spatula)
and work it under the lower half of the first displayed shingle only the exposed part so you don't loosen the nails or the area of the shingle being held by the nails. mouning time the shingle is stiffer and less likely to tear, in the heat of the day the shingle is more flexable and easier to lift and put cement under.
You can buy a caulk tube with the cement in it, use a caulk gun its the easy way and just put a good bead of cement under each tab running the width of each tab also. If done right its easy and pretty quick.
Good luck...
