Cracks in Wall and Ceiling **HELP**

Hi all,
My first post in these forums has to do with a crack in my wall that extends to the ceiling and then runs down the length of the wall. On the other side of the doorway is a similar crack that looks almost identical to the other (also starting out in the wall and then extending to the ceiling).

Am I have structural problems or just settling of the house I have walked the perimeter of the house and see no cracks in the actual foundation. This is my first house and I am a total noob when it comes to this stuff. Please help!! Thanks in advance!

Welcome to the forums

It appears to be a settlement crack. Probably nothing to worry about but you should keep an eye on it in case it grows or reappears after repairing.
