There are three holes on the wall of the garage. I found them when I turn off lights in garage. Anyone please help me to figure out if there are serious or not? Appreciate.

what does the outside look like? a hole in itself just needs sealed to keep moisture and pests out. If there is a reason that hole became a hole, something may need addressed

Rob, thank you. The outside is grass. Based on my observation, looks like they did not pour enough concrete. This will not affect the structure, right? This is a newly built house. I have limited knowledge about that.

That gap just needs filled to keep the pests out but isn't affecting your structure. It is the stem wall to keep the wood framing off of grade to prevent rot/termite issues

I would say it's just most important to keep the insects from coming in they do make a spray foam that is specifically insect control might be something the new homeowners can do themselves
