Frame crack?? Any advice please?

Whilst cleaning I noticed what looks like a crack. I’m not sure if it’s paint or structural. Any thought on this? Thanks

    Common for paint to crack there.

    Impossible to tell without stripping the paint back.

    Then again Orange and weld quality........

    What model and how old Kristof? I've got an Orange Clockwork 2019? Orange weld quality bad? Not too worried got another 4 years on warranty left but worth watching out for problems?
