Cracked bricks

There are a couple of cracked bricks on the side wall of my home. They're not connected in one line, so I don't think it's due to movement. What could be the cause?

"Hi there, the possible cause could be corroded wall ties, when wall ties corrode they expand and can cause cracking to mortar joints and or bricks.
Hope this helps"

"It could simply be down to getting weathered. Get them repointed so as not to cause any damage to the bricks or the interior"

Probably hair line cracks that have weathered, from ice in the winter then heat in the summer."
