That looks a reasonable size, I'd get some wood glue and something thin enough to force it right into the crack. Clamp it overnight and then sand.

I dont have the best eyesight but isnt that just the line where the edge of the scuff sheet used to be?
If not, as with any crack, open it up as far as possible, force in as much glue as deep as possible, tape it closed overnight then sand up. I would use PVA. If the crack wont open much at all you could thin the glue down slightly with a little water.
As to your other post about the delamination. The worse the condition the easier the fix.

Isn't the scuff sheet still on there?
I'm trying to work out if it's a crack or a scratch!

It is. Im suggesting that it has moved from where it was originally leaving a tide mark.

Looks like someones cut it to me. Maybe cutting the scuff sheet and nicking the willow? Difficult to tell really

Personally that looks like someone has scored it with a Stanley blade maybe to lift and remove a previous scuff and the one that on the bat now doesnt cover the edge as far. If its a lower end bat it may have had a fibre scuff sheet and some cover the whole edge.

If its a crack you should see some movement of pressure is applied. Would be hard to understand how a crack like that would form unless there is some clear damage from a shot off the edge would would likely leave a seen mark. If you want to do anything I would gently sand out with a fine grade paper.

That's a score mark from someone cutting the clear scuff sheet which is fitted to the bat.

Thanks all, my brother recently got a scuff sheet fitted from the same shop he bought it so i have asked him to take it back there. I agree with you guys, looking at this again, it does look like someone scratched it!
