Very common, nothing to worrry about.
most often those cracks are between all cylinders.

Subject: [Vwdiesel] Crack in head

I have a crack running between the two valves on the #4 cylinder, its a
hairline crack and doesn't go below to the valve seats, but I am little
worried. Should I continue with this head or maybe have the crack TIG'ed in?
