NJFC (neck joint finish crack): so common, it has an acronym. See how thin the body wood is at that side of the neck pocket- with a tight fitting neck and the inevitability that the woods shrink and expand at different rates, that thin wood at that point will flex a little bit and many times cause the hard finish over it to crack.

Now, if you see a crack starting there and going further into the body-proper, take it to a tech.
