In this photo you can see a ridge beam.
Ridge board must not be the right terminology for this system. I know it's not required but the truss webbing is at an angle I have never seen before. Not to mention an improperly supported package unit on the roof. I was asking for thoughts not insults. Thanks for the advice...

Good for you Patrick. I like your initiative. Doing research and asking questions is a strong asset for a Home Inspector no matter how many years or acronyms they have behind their name.
