Crack on my ceiling / Miami


Hello, I had a plaster job done on my whole house ceiling and walls.
I notice that in 2 spots there is hairline cracks running across my ceiling. What is the cause of these cracks and what can I do to fix them.
Before the compand was done there was like a texture ceiling and walls so the compand was done by hand. LET DRYED than sanded and them preimer and painted. But the cracks are a concern and would like to know what is the cause.

Hard to say WHAT caused the cracks without more information. Is this actual PLASTER that was applied or drywall joint compound used to skim/glaze coat existing surfaces?? What was it applied to, existing drywall or or existing plaster? A layer of drywall over existing plaster? New drywall over framing??
