I notice a very very tiny crack appear on the gloss of one of my ukes and am wondering if that's something that I should try to get fixed and if so, what's the best way to fix it? I don't want to overdo it, but I also don't want it to lead to a bigger problem

it's only a surface crack--can't feel it underneath, and it's solid wood, but glossed. It is really barely noticeable

.... an unfilled grain line on the surface that shows through the finish ?

Actually sorry, it may not be an unfilled grain line. I can actually feel the difference in texture more prominently than I think I would an unfilled grainline
