Good day

The areas you are describing looks like normal wear of the gold crown, due to normal function or due to grinding. If they aren't bothering you, leave as is, otherwise it can be smoothed out to remove any sharp edges. Also make sure the occlusion with the opposing tooth is right. If it becomes more severe at a later stage, the crown might need replacement, but this will take years usually and not happen overnight.
