    Bit hard to tell from your screenshots but my best guesses are a few things: 
    • The islands on those problem areas aren't straightened/are rotated, so therefore are receiving a lot of aliasing and stepping
    • Make sure you are baking with padding, atleast 8 or 16 px padding will do
    • Your resolution/texel density is too low, which exacerbates the previously mentioned issues
    • Your highpoly is EXTREMELY sharp, and does not have soft enough edge bevelling - there's next to no highpoly information on your bake from your screenshot
    Feel free to upload your bake files, I can take a look :smile:

    Based on your UV image it's because you baking sharp/split edges  without splitting them into UV islands
