Noticed the other day that I have some cracks on one of the headlights, not sure where they came from as the car was parked in the garage, and I'm 99.9% sure they weren't there when I parked the car inside the garage.

Has anyone ever seen something similar? Do you know what might have caused this? And is there any way to remove/fix this?

My thoughts are that the cracking/crazing is caused by something attacking the perspex of the headlight lens. Have you used something with amonia in it to clean the headlight...something like T-Cut or similar which has amonia in it?

I had a 2018 (Thor Hammer LED) that had similar cracks like this however it was not at the 'top' of the headlight but down the middle where the high-beam was, but thought it was caused by a stonechip as it was only 2 years old and shouldn't have cracked already.

Are these cracks or scratches? They do look like scratches on the photos and I would suspect a cat doing these.
There is some sort of material that is used to fill cracks on windows, maybe this can applied there too. You could visit a detailing shop and ask I think!
