Paint peeling at seams

My paint is peaking at most seams that looked caulked. It doesn’t look nice. Any ideas? 2015 Forester 3051.

Thanks ejohnson1144. Learn something new every day. I never heard of these brushes. They look very useful.

I trimmed the chalk back and sealed with clear silicone. It seems that as the caulk squeezes out it cracks the paint.

And yes a good body shop can match the paint.
