Hi Melissa. From what I can tell it doesn't look like anything was properly done. All the seams including the niche should have been taped with alkali resistant tape and thinset and there is zero...

Hi Jeff. What you have is fairly typical of coping installation. A lot of masons throw some mortar down onto the bond beam and just set the coping on top of that mortar. The correct way to do it...

I don't see any mesh tape on the seams. That alone would produce the cracks in the grout. They aren't going away without it.
