Walnut can get ornery.
Those pictures look like you currently have the strips cut, but have not yet glued them together into a board?

If so, there is nothing restricting the wood from expanding/shrinking on it’s own, unrestricted, so it’s very likely just the wood relieving internal stresses. Things would get much worse had the board been fully assembled.
