Default Crack in finish where binding meets.

Hi was wondering if anyone can give me some advice on this crack in the finish where the binding meets on the back of my guitar. I'm pretty anal about humidity so fairly certain it's not that.
You can feel the crack like the binding has moved a little, kind of moving away from one another. If anything my house was a little low for a week a while ago but has stayed in the green for ages again. If it gets to low I put it back in my room which is humidified.
Thought it might be the magnets of the tonewoodamp as they are quite strong.

Any thoughts welcome

EDIT:

I done this through the app on my phone and didn't see that the image didn't work - Trying to work out how to put pic up just now

Wood expands and contracts all the time, its typically not noticed by most people, the reason it is more noticeable for you is that i suspect that is a uv finish guitar.

When uv cracks/seperates from the base wood, its has a distinctive whiteness to it, then you touch and you can feel the split.

IMO, its totally okay and just leave it alone, but i am perusing it vee a computer screen and not handling it.
