My new dreads

I have a pewter bead stuck in a dread. The hair shrunk tight and fat around it. You can see it. It is just that the hair dreaded above and below so the bead does not move. So yes it is possible. If it worries you then take the bead out every few days or move it along the length of the dread.
You are fine. Remember that TnR is just a starter method and not really dreads yet. It does look "braidy" at first. What is going to happen is that it will loosen up and then actual knots start to form. It is good that you realized that some were too big because they do thicken up a whole lot.
I would not put coconut oil in your hair. I use it on my skin i LOVE it! I rubs off a tiny bit onto my dreads but it is too heavy to actually apply to your dreads. I actually have gotten a sore spot/bump or two from wearing my hair back too tight. What I do now is I wrap a band around my head after I pull it up. It takes pressure off and distributes the weight a bit. Try putting a bit of tea tree oil on the bumps with a q-tip.
