Almost certainly the type of roller sleeve being used ...when rolling never just go up and down vary it in a criss cross pattern too... but lightly
Hope this helps

Strange that one.what sort of lines ? Long,short,thick thin,gathered ,indented,beneath paint or paint.
Either way let it dry,abrade the surface and start again,if indented make good by filling,change the sleeve on your roller and hopefully you should be good.
