誰かにお話しするほどのことでもないなって。うちの主人なんかもぜんぜん信じないし、「それはゲシュタルト崩壊だね。誰もたまに文字が文字に見えなくなったりするよ」とか見当違いのことを得意げに言うだけだし。

Hi. What is the function of the なって in bold?
And by the way, what does なんかも mean here? Isn’t it used to belittle someone?
Thank you.

It's just the sentence ending particle な plus quotative て, used as a kind of rhetorical self-reflection.

Yes, なんかも is kind of belittling and derogatory. In Japanese language/culture, it's common to "lower" your in-group members, like family.
