You should take him to the dentist in the next couple of days. He also looks as though he is well overdue for a scale and polish. Does he floss?

That's his 1st molar, and they rarely crack like that unless there is decay undermining it. He will start to get pain from it, so get him to dentist as soon as practicable. that'll be a large hole underneath, and in my experience he may have to have it extracted.
