Crack around exterior wall

I was planning on replacing some baseboards, after I pulled the boards up I noticed a fairly large crack (a quarter of an inch wide) between the slab and the exterior wall of the house, running the whole length of the wall. Is this common? The home is around 8 years old. Do I need to call some one to check it out?

Thanks for any help.

Welcome to the forums!

That looks like some type of settlement crack in the slab. How long is the crack? Have you noticed anything else cracking or shifting? Everything look ok on the outside of that wall?
