    i would spray some water along the crack and then use a scraper to feed in some decoraters caulk or a very fine filler.

    sand and paint.

    It might also be worth checking that it's not the tape/s coming loose from the seams on your ceiling.If they are,it's better to take off any loose ones,and get new tapes put back on.
