Id say there isnt a great deal to worry about there tbh. From a purely aesthetic POV you could maybe try and steam it out a bit before getting wood glue (or super glue if the cracks arent wide enough) in and then giving it a sand.

Hold the kettle switch in the on position and hold the cracked area over the spout. Just keep hands well away, a steam burn is no kinds of fun.

That looks more like a compression crack than delamination to me.

You could either inject some PVA glue in there or use the superglue and sand method. What's more important than the gluing is to give it some knocking in so the area around it is compressed equally to the "damaged" area.

For sure, presumably the cause was a fairly hard ball on a newish outside edge that wasnt yet knocked in/rounded off enough.

As I said, glue and sand is the main part. Steaming(fairly option but so think it helps) then trying to evenly compress both edges afterwards is probably the best precaution against anymore damage.

Well thats working a treat.

Switched to camping stove now as domestic kettle switches itself of just as the steam gets good.

And a lovely cup of tea on the go

Completely agree. Get a thin knife to wedge the cracks open a bit, add PVA/diluted PVA glue in the cracks, tape it with a tape to keep it together overnight till PVA gardens and then give it a quick sanding the next day. I would also add a scuff sheet on the edges to help stop it getting worse too soon.
