Gel Coat Issue

Saw this on the X30 this past weekend. It's hard to see but it's a crack that has a little movement when I press on it. Any solutions out there to keep this from area from chipping out or spreading. Not sure how it happened because we didn't hit anything.

could be a void under the gel
get it addressed before it travels to the white
if you're the original owner this maybe covered under warranty

It shouldn't be that expensive of a fix a couple hundred at most.

I would agree with impact but there are no signs of of this. Zero marring around the area and no evidence on the rub rail. Our X2 is an older boat we bought used with a few cracks in the gel but this is different. It's like the gel coat cracked and delaminated its self in a small area.

doesn't take much.. to crack if touched just right... only other test is to use a box cutter blade to pick at it.. but then you'll be at it to fix.. what part of the boat is it? could be stress crack.. from flex?
