It’s a nail/screw pop. At that height you smear some caulking on it and hit it with some touch up paint. No one will know.

Looks to me like nail pops. Over time the nails work loose and cause the drywall must to raise and then chip off.

Heck that job is too small for me. I mean I'm too small for that job.
Honesty, I would stop looking at the ceiling. Who the F looks at ceilings? Gonna cost you a grand before you know it.
Although IT COULD ( but doubtful) be ants or something eating holes.

That guy is using a "Little Giant" Ladder. At least he tied into the Baluster for double protection.
No way, no how I am doing that.
And Yes, he will fall SPLAT onto the coffee table, face first. Not worth it.

There's no attic access over that area and there's no way I have a ladder or anything tall enough to get up there. House built in 2005 original roof. I tried to camera zoom in it looks like they used nails rather than screws and that's what it is that's showing but I cannot tell for sure. Who would I contact to look at that?

Anyone that does house construction, general contractor, or anyone good with home stuff I'm not too sure what to make of this but I'm assuming it's not going to be good given it's a 2005 built house...

Thanks for the info.





Definitly screw or nail pops.
Go to a commercial equipment rental place and rent a set of tinker toy scaffolding. They are not real expensive as you only need one for a small area and can move it around the room.
Replace the pops with new screws, spackle up the holes.
