10 year old hummingbird that has what looks like a crack running down from the bridge to the bottom of the guitar. From my research it appears to have been made from humidity not from dropping or banging to guitar in anyway. Should I just fill it in with glue? Any thoughts are welcomed.

Take it to someone who is experienced in crack repair on a guitar. A good repair person can make it almost invisible, almost anything you do will make it look worse. First step is humidify until the crack closes.
G'luck with it.

I have a much older Hummingbird with a similar crack, but it appears to only be the finish, and not the wood on mine.
