I’d cut off the breadboard end, not only to fix the issues, but to replace it with a piece that doesn’t have a knot/branch so close to the joint. If that gap bugs you, that knot/branch area is going to continue to give you problems because it won’t move linearly as it expands and contracts due to moisture.

I can see that the table top a rustic style (which I like), but you can still plan around the knots by not putting them so close to an area that you want a tight joint.

For this wood, I think a v-groove at the joint line is probably a good idea.
