CA is what I would use if you want to fix them but make sure you wipe off any on the outside before it sets so that you don’t have any burrs. Use the thin stuff so that it will seep into the cracks and apply pressure by hand (wear gloves) for a minute or 2 until it sets to close the gaps. I would use the slow setting kind so you have time to apply it along the entire length at once and wipe off any excess. I often use the kind used for finishing wood turnings for filling and closing cracks or breakages in turned items.
