    Jaynay, good evening.

    Nice straight line, it is a joint between two plasterboard ceiling boards.

    Remedy? apply a skim of plaster to the entire ceiling?

    Or,

    Apply a thick lining paper, not as good as above but will "mask" the worst effects of the crack.


    Or, carefully rake / cut out the crack with a Stanley knife or similar, take your time and re-fill the joint.

    if you can?? take a look at all the "similar" other posts below.

    Ken.
