Repairing a small crack

Hi guy's,
I was wondering the best way to repair a crack in my AJ-220s.
I think it was caused by humidity and I wanted to know if i could fix it myself or should i get it done professionally.

Edit: the pic didn't upload.

you should get it done professionally. btw, you should also address the humidity issue or your guitar will just crack again.

I remeber watching a repair video by the people at Taylor where a body had split/separated and they closed it using humidity only.

I would definitely get a humidifier and see if that closes it up a bit. Then I would wick some thin super glue into it.

It's a really cheap guitar, so I wouldn't bother paying someone to fix it. They'd probably just do what I suggested anyway, since you can't fix the crack in the finish.
