I have a two year old ranch house with pop corn ceiling and knockdown walls with small crown molding , the first winter a big crack came above the molding in two rooms, kitchen & livingroom/hall, used caulk in it, (alot) this year the crack in a lot bigger look real bad. one more thing I did the drywall and on the ceiling I think I put the screws close to the wall. How can I fix This, Thanks,Dennis

Untaped cracks come back. There is no way around that. I have tried.

I tape all seams

All the seams are tape with the metal & paper drywall strip that I bought at home depot.

If you tried to repair a crack with just caulk, and no tape, it will come back. If it is cracking around a taped seam, the wallboard may not be fastened tightly enough to the studs.
