Help diagnose torch issue

So I've been watching this torch closely for past week because 3-4 heads have remained shriveled without ever expanding to fully open (first pic below).  No outward signs of BJD or tissue loss.  Maybe just the slightest bit of recession.  Then this morning I noticed the mouth of a different head seemed to be torn open, with white stuff coming out.  Some of it looks like little white balls (pics below).

Anyone have any clue about what the heck is going on here?

Even as I write this, the mouth seems to be closing up on its own.

After a little more research, it appears to be a spawning event. So cool!  Even saw a few posts where baby torches appeared afterwards, so I shut off the pumps for awhile to allow eggs to settle.
