For now, I'm throwing in with what dahermit replied.
With time, this crack will propagate down to the bottom area and in fact, I'm surprised it isn't already there.

By the way, that is great looking holster. The crack should be an easy fix and after applying the glue, I would clamp it, firmly but not tight. I sandwich the leather between to strips bamboo or plastic. Once the clamps are in place, remove any excess cement before it dries. Currently I'm using Loctite-Stik'n seal. Forget wood glues or standard rubber cement. ....

Be Safe !!!
I mean, I’m not worried about the cosmetics of the holster. It’s a great looking holster, but I’m expecting to wear it out pretty well. I’m just concerned about the crack turning into a complete separation and destroying the holster’s ability to even hold a gun; much less being rough with it. Will the stitching hold if I decide not to glue it, or should I just throw some cement/glue in there?
