Based on the grain pattern and what looks to be stress gaps, I would say nothing you can do.

Appreciate the distance between, dial it in to be consistent and enjoy those marks. Kind of like the worm holes that make us giddy when we get down to that layer !

Looks like curly to me. It's MUCH more rare in walnut, than maple, but can be similar.
The figure is usually broad and wide, like cherry.

Fiddleback, or tight curl is super-rare. Many many thousands of BF of walnut and I only ever had this once.
It's in my private-reserve stash. Some have asked and I reply, "You can not afford it."  ;D :D

5/4 wide stock with spectacular curl and color.

I own my own small piece of the world on an 8 acre plot on the side of a mountain with walnut, hickory, ash and spruce.
