    Any help on this would be appreciated. Possible die crack?

If it looks sunken in (incuse) then it's probably a post strike damage (PSD) scratch. Also with PSD there will be raised metal on each side of the scratch so don't let that confuse you. We all understand the struggles with taking pics! Do you have a loupe or other magnifier that you can hold up to your camera lens to magnify the image?"

    A closeup would be helpful, but the light reflection seems to indicate it is a crack.

    Okay cool! Yeah... that will help you a lot! Some of the members here have magnifiers that they clip to their phone, hopefully they will chime in and give you some ideas.
