Is the corner brace that is underneath metal type fastened with screws, or it is it the type that is metal covered with paper and flaps that is mudded on? I am guessing it is the type that is mudded on. Brace that is screwed on does not come up like that.

This could also be truss uplift, which is caused by winds and in some cases heat in the attic. The truss is attached to the walls above with some nails and sheetrock, and lifts when the truss moves.
Very typical in homes which are truss built. Can happen in the first year or the 20th year.
