My established sections keep breaking down into tinier sections. Like REALLY tiny. I would say it’s half a width of a pencil. Is this too tiny? Should I wait it out, and see? Or should combine them later on if too small?
Such thing as too small of a section?

My dreads are over 10 feet long

Here’s a photo of one big section that automatically started breaking into 3. Should I leave it? Would love some input. I’m a little scared that the smaller sections wouldn’t be sturdy enough.
A lot of mine started out that way (my photos are old). I was really worried about that too, but I just kept telling myself "the dread will end up the width of the base." Some of them are still super little. It's neat though, some of them still bunched up doing a weird loopy zig zag and because of how tiny they are it's a bit absurd :P
The way my super straight hair formed, the under side developed waaaay faster than the top bits, so I still have some straight hair on top that's still trying to find a home. I just think that they will probably survive on their own like the ones below did. Or if they are too little, they will either find a big brother to take care of them, or I can join them up with one later. Would be much easier than forcing them into larger sections and then realizing you shouldn't have.
I also have some that are sooooo thin like that. Most of them are in the front but there are a few in the back as well. Also i had other ones that were that thin and thickened over time. Those particular ones are about sharpee thick now. And all of those are in the back.
