Default Hairline Fractures in Decking

I just noticed two hairline fractures in the deck that originate from the left hinge of the hold lid.
I know that hairline cracks are part of the nature of fiberglass boats, but considering my boat is two months old should I be concerned i.e. take it to the dealer or just let it go because it will probably happen again as soon as I get it back in the water?

Default hair line cracks...

since it's new...take it back to the dealer......let them deal with it.....it will only take a small effort........just grind it out and re-fill it with gelcoat repair kit....let set...sand with a good fine sand paper...then use a rubbing compound..then wax...badabing...done-ski......really easy.....
