Green,

I would highly recommend getting another inspector to take a look in the attic.
As an inspector I would try to get in the attic where the water stains/damage is in the house. Just because the outside is dry doesn’t mean that it is completely dry in the attic space. Like the other posts have said as well, you want to make sure there is no mold.
Once you know that the leak is gone and the areas that have been damaged from water are dry I would recommend using kilz to paint over the stains. Water stains are extremely hard to cover with normal paint, kilz is great at getting rid of that.

Thanks
Ege,

I would agree with mike that it looks like it is wood split.
Thankfully it’s a piece of trim that would be an easy fix. One good way to further investigate would be to take the trim piece off and see what it looks like behind there. If you see further damage it would be best to get it professionally inspected.
Thank you.
