Bathroom ceiling crack around corner

Hi There,
I'm looking for some advice on how to fix a crack around the perimeter of my bathroom ceiling about an inch from the wall. Any suggestions of what to do would be greatly appreciated. As its in the bathroom and subject to moisture, I'm worried about mold starting to develop. Below is a picture of the crack: Name:  IMG_6307.jpg

Welcome to the forums.

Can you take a picture from further back? I think I know what this is but would like a better picture to confirm.

That's where the mud/tape has separated a little. I'd clean out anything that is loose and apply another coat of mud over it.

Is the wall/ceiling painted with a latex enamel? Latex enamel will repel moisture but most flat paints will absorb it.

Yes they are painted with latex paint in a satin sheen. Thanks for the advice.
