Cracking paint on top tube

I've noticed a number of cracks in the paint on the top tube of my 2015 CAAD10 have developed. Is this a problem? (Would post image, but I'm not allowed.) The bike hasn't been crashed and lives a good life under cover. Is is just something to worry about because I've got nothing to worry about? Thanks.

We really need photos. Also, where are you seeing the cracks? near joints, or in the middle of the tube.

It could simply be bad paint + sunlight, or it could be critical frame cracks developing.
