I would try to smooth the polys in the middle with the "sculpt geometry tool" in the "mesh" menu play a little bit with the obtions - this should help

To hold the crease you have three edges close together. To smooth it you will need to move the edges apart through that area. Your options are the sculpt poly tool with smooth or select vertices and average or manually move verts along the surface normals.
