As long as it plays well I wouldn't worry about it. I assume it would be a huge pain in the butt to return it, and a proper repair would cost more than you paid for it. Just play it , and enjoy it!

I have a friend with a guitar that the back has separated from the sides all along the bottom bout---he taped it back together with duct tape, and it sounds great---there is something else wrong with that guitar. That little crack shouldn't make much difference in the sound.
