Cornice Joinery at bookcase is splitting ?

Need an advise of jointing the splitting cornice of bookcase's helmet?
the damage is to the cornice of the bookcases. it is splitting.
This is because the pelmet protrudes out from the main body of the bookcase.

If the loose parts have a good fit, just add some glue and clamp. For the rough areas, fill with spackle, sand and touch up with paint.

The miters are cut , glue is added, and finish nails or brad nails are used to fasten. A small corner gusset can be used on the backside, glued and fastened helps to maintain a corner connection.
