3 months into freeform - visible scalp on the back of my head

Hey everybody, almost 3 months into my freeform journey now, which has been quite the adventure. My hair is locking up well, but I have noticed a couple times in the past 2 months, that there’s a scalp-y place on the back of my head. No lady wants to feel like she looks bald. :-(

Flipping them from side to side throughout the day does seem to help with the visible scalp, and I have the feeling that I tend to sleep on that part of my head.

Does anyone have any advice to help me through this? Most days I love my unique, freeform wild hair, but I have already had a couple tough days in this journey, where I’ve questioned why I’m doing this and what the heck am I actually doing. Words of support appreciated. <3

They will get better I wouldn’t worry about it the two look like they might need to be separated it’s hard to tell

I don’t think separating is an issue, I know in the first pic of the back of my head, it looks like there’s 2 that are connected, but they’re not. There’s no pulling or tugging, all my locks hang freely.
I will keep flipping my locks from side to side, and putting my hair up above my head before I go to sleep, so I don’t lay back on my scalp so much
