freshly jointed boards should fit perfectly together. I use .002” as my margin for error when setting up my jointer for coplaner.
Be sure to wax the jointer bed and fence so the workpiece feeds freely. Blades sharp?
If you joint two boards, and they sit in the shop for a couple weeks – then I can see why they might not be perfect. Making straight / square edges is all your jointer does, so it has to do it right.
