So I turned on my 3DS today and I noticed the start button and Circle Pad felt a little stiff. Tried couple of games and they same to play ok but.....I'm felling slight lag and it keeps making I noise when I move it left and right (can only hear when really close to my ear) I looked under the circle pad to see if it had any grit underneath and I can't see any any but I did notice a line.

Is that normal or a crack?

Sometimes mine hits something at the bottom right. I'm pretty sure it's because the circle pad is basically 3 pieces which move on their own, and it hits up against the inside of the shell. It's kind of bad design really, and dust stuff can easily get stuck under it.
