My eyes aren't what they used to be I wish you would have used paint and drawn an arrow to it, but the bottom line is any crack will only get larger with continued use. If it's somewhere that you feel save enough to widen it by stressing the openng I would squirt a very small amount of supper glue into it and then hold it firmly together till it sets.

I think I seee it now it's on the hinge? Then the naswer is no it's not safe, and fixing it with super glue could be a bit tricky since you wouldn't want to put so much in the crack as to have it get down into where it needs to rotate.

I can see the crack is on the lid hinge.

+1 Super glue. But don't drown it. You want the hinge to work after the crack is sealed.

It will eventually break in two. everytime you open and shut your laptop it will be stressed and continue to grow.

Well if you call having to prop up your diaply to be able to keep it aligned with the other side a effect then yes.

Lets put it this way it couldn't be in a worse place for a lptop If it cracks all the way through it may still hold the display in place but it won't want to stay open and if it were to break completely off then one side would stop at any given point and the other would need something behid it to get it to stay where you want it to stop.
