Pointing crumbling away from damp proof course

I’ve got a garage which has what seems to be a bitumen felt DPC.

Originally there was pointing over the DPC but over the last couple of years this has come away so the edge of the DPC is now clearly visible between the two courses of bricks all the way round the building. See photos below.

Will that potentially give me a problem with damp? Do I need to rush to get it repointed or is this nothing more than a cosmetic issue?

Thanks in advance for any tips on this.
