Solved! What to Do About Peeling Paint
Looks like the big cracks is the join in the boards. You panel could be coming loose and will need to be nailed back. Mine has been like this for years.
Here's some help:
Shay: maybe this will help
You will need to scrape away any loose paint from the surface. Spackle can be used to fill-in cracks. Once it dries, sand it smooth and then repaint.

Hi Shay. First scrape off any peeling paint. Then fill cracks with plaster. Allow the plaster to dry according to label directions. Next comes sanding. Sand until it's all smooth. Wipe up all dust from sanding. Then prime and paint. It's important to allow each coat to dry before adding the next coat. Good luck Shay.
Hi! Sometimes cracks keep appearing and need to be taped along with the spackle. The tape gives it the added support needed, especially after cleaning away the edges. Good luck and stay safe!
I agree with everyone else here, but I would also add that if there's a reason why the paint is chipping and peeling that should be addressed of it will just keep happening. For example a water leak, etc.
Fortunately, you caught it early, so you can probably do a patch job rather than repaint entire walls. The steps below outline precisely how to go about fixing peeling paint. But be forewarned: It’s crucial that you get your surfaces in shape and use the appropriate product to ensure smooth, long-lasting results in your bathroom fixes as well as the fresh paint job in your bedroom.
Before you begin, it’s a good idea to check for a leaky roof or plumbing concern that may have contributed to the peeling in the bathroom and could wreak havoc with your repair attempts.
Once you get that squared away, get cracking on those cracks! Protect the floor with a drop cloth, and have a receptacle handy to catch the refuse. Gear up with goggles and a face mask, because tiny flakes of paint are sure to go flying. Then—using a putty knife, wire brush, or paint scraper—carefully remove all the chipped or peeling paint from the walls and ceiling.
