wait..do you have many thin dreads twisted together? its hard to tell from the pic but li]ooks like maybe?
it would really help to see a photo thats just loose as well as 1 showing the roots and scalp
that way we will know what to do
if they are as thick as they look thats a big plus since the roots shouldnt have thinned too much just the scalp between them
if..the roots are thined and the dreads thinned and twisted together unless they are already locking together the twisting together might hurt things more you want as lil tension on the roots as possible
