    small cracks like this can easily fill with paint, just put on a bit thicker in that area. hopefully you still have that color paint.

    Use either flexible caulk or a small tub of spackling, apply with your finger, then repaint the area. This is caused by your foundation settling and the flexibility of the caulk will do the best job. I have recently had to do this in my home after foundation repairs

    I definitely agree that caulk is the way to go, make sure it is a paintable caulk so you can paint it after you fill the crack. We get these here in northern MN from how the building shrinks and expands from our extreme temperatures, it will crack again if you don't use something flexible like caulk but that should take care of it!

    Perfect site from Janet Pizaro. DO NOT fill the gap without using drywall tape or it will return. I like to use the mesh tape. Sticky on one side to stick over the crack.
