    If you're having a difficult time distinguishing whether it's a scratch or crack,it would be virtually impossible for anyone to judge just by looking at a photo.

    If functionality isn't affected,the point is moot & regardless,it's a cosmetic flaw.
    Whether you can live w/it,that's up to you.

    If it's merely a scratch & ya wanna try fixing it yourself,Google search "Scratch Repair for Gorilla Glass" or take a look here:

    Pic not loading for me either. Probably Google objecting to VPN again. Could you attach it to your post instead.

    It's got to be a scratch When your screen actually cracks you can feel pieces moving around. Can you feel pieces moving around?

    In a dark room, focus a flashlight at an angle on your screen. A scratch will look at essentially the same, while a crack will look wider as the cracked edges will reflect slightly.
