Raised area on roof

The wood has come up a little but does not feel softer than any other seam on the roof where 2 boards meet. No leaks that I can see inside. This has looked like this for years but is more noticeable now. The wood moves a little when I push down on it back to the place it should be. I flattened it out with my hand and the raised up area in the edpm goes away. (So Iím hoping itís air!! ) Iím going to watch to see if the bubble comes back up. Can not imagine how water could get in just a 2-3 foot part of seam. Only the AC is what Iím thinking. I just checked the torque on Ac bolts and tightened it 2 weeks ago. This elevated area does not extend to the roof edge. I could try to screw it down and cover screws with externabond, I could cut open a slit at the seam and inspect and reseal or just leave it be. Iím not doing anything yet till I get ALOT of opinions. So anyone with roof experience could tell me what they think it would be appreciated. Thanks for any advice. Click image for larger version

I looked again and the bubble is back after 20 min so Iím 99% sure itís air. (Thatís a good thing, my thinking is water would not just fill it again like that),again there is no raised trail that may be water leading to this area. But the wood is raised like 1/8th inch. Iím thinking I should just leave it be and keep an eye on it.
