Default Just bottled my first batch (cracked carboy?) now pics

So I spent the afternoon bottling my first batch of beer (irish red ale) and was a success I feel. After I was done all my clean up I noticed what was possibly a crack in the carboy, I honestly didn't even inspect this the first time I used it but maybe it's not a crack but just a defect? Opinions? I have pictures . the last pic is kind of through the hole lol.

looks like a manufacturing flaw. From what I can see I'd use it. Was it leaking?

It looks to me like a manufactering seam or something like that. Nothing I would worry about. You could do the tap test. You can hear if the carboy is cracked because it won't reverberate very well.
