Prominent cartilage fissuring in the lateral patellar facet. What does this mean? Is it just holes in the cartilage?

Like cut coconut . It is like a cut in the white coconut flesh. If cut down to the shell it leaves a fissure and u can pry it open. Come back the next day and it's still there, no healing. Articular cartilage is the same, once cut it remains cut for ever as this cartage has no ability 2 heal as it has no blood supply. It's not a hole but like the coconut the fissure remains.
