Cracked rafter? Ok to leave?

Here is a picture of a crack rafter. It has a 2x4 nailed on it to the opposite rafter about four feet down from peak. I was thinking of sistering it or is it ok to leave alone? It does not go all the way through

Welcome to the forums.

It could be sistered or you could just install a rafter hanger bracket to pick up the bottom half.
