Just noticed these two skirting boards are swollen

Any ideas of the potential cause?

Looks like poorly fitted skirting which has been back filled?

Pierce them with something as fine as a school compass pin. Is the wood soft or is the "swelling" blown paint?
If not & there's no history of damp then forget about it - its probably a nothing.
