Default Gibson 345 VOS neck question.. please help

Hi,
Just recently I bought a gibson 345 VOS in frost blue colour second hand.
The guitar keeps in tune and sounds awesome but on the back of the neck I noticed this crack..?? Not sure its a crack and I am not sure whether it is normal or not
Do I have to be concerned? Thanks for any help or info in advance,

That's just the seam between the neck and the body.

Congrats and enjoy!

Thanks DanR for the quick reply. So there is no reason for worry?
I tried to look on pictures on the net but did not see this "crack".. (but you can only see it on mine too from a certain angle.)

No reason to worry. I happen to own a '67 ES335. As the neck is a separate assembly of wood from the body, there has to be a seam.
