Been in our home for 4 months now. Nail pops appeared early on. Have noticed a handful, different locations.
I understand these are a defect, but do I run a risk by leaving them as is?
My issue is I don't want a patch job where paint doesn't end up matching sheen wise, etc. Would prefer to wait a few years for house to settle and get the whole ceiling done at once but obviously don't want the ceiling caving in either!
Thanks! Any advice appreciated

My issue is that we've had other plaster and paint problems whereby they said finishes can only be judged without glancing light as per standards and tolerances. I understand there is no chance they'd consider painting the whole ceiling, hence a patch up, hence a horrid looking shine as this ceiling has glancing light at all times throughout the day, in the main open living area! I hope that makes sense as to why I'd prefer to leave if it's not a major issue, until I'm ready to bring in a painter for the whole ceiling. You can't patch paint.

I understand your concerns re: patch painting.
My builders were champs at this.
Patch painted gloss doors too and seemed surprised I was not pleased.
My ceiling paint is a flat paint and patch painting in this area has been ok. See what paint was used and possibly get advice from paint shop as it may be ok.
I would report the nail pops to the builder. And see if you can wait until winter as there may be more that become obvious before summer ends.
In theory the builder should fix nail pops that occur in the first 24 mths, good you have one more summer when they are more likely to present themselves.
