Wet dash

Hi, I’ve just had my new build wet dashed. On close inspection I’ve noticed lots of little hairline cracks in the dash but not through to the backing coat. Should I be concerned?
Could the wrong mix have been used??
4 chippings, 2 cement, half of lime

Sounds a bit too cement rich. I would have replaced one bucket of cement for a bucket of sharp sand. The lime is to make the dash sticky so the stones can get coated in mortar in the mixer.
