RG Prestige - Flaw in headstock

I recently purchased an RG Prestige. It fits my needs perfectly, very high build quality, beautiful, locking tuners, fixed bridge, dual humbuckers and beautiful sound. As a retired school teacher, it will probably be my last guitar.

After its puchase new, I had my local guitar expert do a setup. It is my dream guitar.

However, upon close inspection, I found a flaw on the head stock. On the upper left side there is a ~ 3/8" fill. It is not located in a stress area and it is surely only cosmetic. Since I want to keep this guitar for the long run, is there anything I need to do to ensure that it will not be a problem, wax periodically for example?

Photo attached. (Cannot upload 44kb image. )

Thank you,
