They'll inspect it deeper; likely more extensive x-rays, disassembly, etc. The US Space Force and NASA will definitely be involved.  If it passes then it's still the Use Leader: back into the queue and see how #11 goes. 

 

If we've learned anything it's that Falcon 9 Block 5 is tough as nails, and SpaceX isn't shy about being on the bleeding edge. Ya just gotta love that.
