Topsheet Crack?

Hi Guys,

First time posting here, so I apologize if I didn't post this in the right place or something, but I had a question about this topsheet "crack". I'm not entirely sure what is going on here but I'm hoping you guys with more experience can tell me what is going on. I'm also not sure if this is something I should be worried about or something I should epoxy.

The bump in the topsheet has spider cracks from the sidewall on the rear heel side binding in towards the binding about 2-2.5" (photo 1). the bump isn't more than like 2mm high it appears (photo 1).

My friend took to a shop to get post-season prepared, and I told him to mention to the guy about the small bump in the top sheet. The report from the guy at the shop was that is was only cosmetic. And he seemed to epoxy the sidewall nicely (photo 2).

However, when I came back from a trip to examine the board again, I flexed the board, and that's when I realized the topsheet bump separates from the rest of the board. I'm not sure if that's just the topsheet splitting away or part of the core or what not (photo 3). This is what scared me, and I am not sure whether the guy at the shop knew that/flexed it to see how the bump responded. This is because the shop's epoxy work doesn't seal anymore when I flex the board.

So I'm posting here to see what you guys think. Is it something serious? How could it have happened? I did buy this used, but I can't remember if I saw this on the board before or after I used it for about a week in December. I bought this board used from a snow store where they said they check all the boards before they are allowed to sell them, and that only the good boards are sold.

Thanks for the help guys.
