The builder just poured concrete for the foundation of my house. One week later I saw a vertical crack on the back side of the slab. The crack is thin but it goes vertical and also horizontal. It is about 2 feet long. I am so worry that the crack will get bigger later on. Please see attached pictures and give advises.

Sounds like he back filled the wall too soon, it will crack every time. And leak.
