What pressures are you running and on what surface?

It looks like you've been riding with a real low/flat tyre

Just looks like the flex marks you get on folding tyres, happens when they corner under load. Nothing to worry about

Stay loose

Pressures seem reasonable, do you ride on stony trails ?

One of my NB's has done that, I've been running it tubeless just fine for the last 12 months.
