look at your bars see if theres a few indents on on the bars if not you need new bars if the dents are clearly there then you just need a new stem if the bike is brand new maybe call hoffmann and explain

You've proberly over tightened, stripped the bolts of the inside of the stem or crushed your bars otherwise they should'nt move unless you've somehow got grease inside your stem? Try wiping the inside of your stem with an old cloth and around your bars and see what happens.

Make sure the top of the stem, the cap part, is on level, ie theres an even space all the way round. If you tighten down the closet 2 bolts 1st and then the 2 at the front this will apply uneven pressure at the back of the stem and will allow your bars to move forwards.

Once you have the top part on level tighten down in a diagonal pattern going round the bolts 2 or 3 times. Never fully tighten down each one 1st time.
