In the main post, the second pic, the roots are already in 2 sections so just take those 2 sections and pull them apart. The top pic, the really big one...it may take some work but do the same thing, Do it when it's wet tho, much much easier. I've just separated a couple of mine over the last couple weeks and they're over a year old.

I really would love some real fatties, and I really want it to do it's own thing, but I don't want it to pull and hurt, or be uncomfortable

Do you want them smaller? The one in the bottom pic has an easy solution, after you wash the next time, just pull it apart from root to tip. It's easiest when it's wet. It's hard to tell with the top pic. It looks like you could probably separate it as well if that's what you want. All those small clumps of hair around it, I would just gently pull them away from the bigger one that's trying to suck them up. To separate, just take two dreadies and pull them apart.

You want the sections no bigger than an inch square(ish) for really good sized mature dreads. Anything smaller than that is gravy for smaller :)

the 2nd one I think I shoulddefinitelysplit, because as you said itsalready2 parts anyway, but the top one is just big i think and notawkwardlyseparated, but I don't want it to be uncomfortable. What would you think?

Ok, that's great. Thanks heaps for the speedy response, and awesome advice. It's dread wash day tomorrow, so will work on separating them while they r wet, The rest are all pretty much the same size as the other pics ( in the comments) so they are my only 2 to worry about. CHEERS

hhhhmmm I personally prefer smaller, that's just me tho. I would let it do it's thing for a while and see how it feels. I had about 4 different sections congo in the first couple months creating some decent sized fatties. They were ok but all on the right side of my head. Anyway, when they grew together I figured I would just let them be and see how they turned out. They looked good and everything but I just wanted them smaller, so I separated them. Now the right side of my head feels fuller lol

If you want a couple big ones, you have the perfect start right now lol Let it go for a few months and see just how big it gets. Just pay attention to your comfort level when you're laying down and that it doesn't hurt your head, especially when it's wet.

Perhaps a mental picture will help for you. What ever the size of the dread at root and scalp, that will be the dimension of the mature dread. So if you had hair attached and the root section is 3" wide-all stuck together-, then that would be the size of the dread. With length it would become heavy and take a VERY long time to dry. It is great to have assorted sizes, but just be careful how fat some get.
