(no subject)

So... I just joined this community tuesday after starting my dreads Monday night by backcombing and wax. I'm kind of wondering if they look alright for being a few days old? There are a few of them, mostly on the top area of my head, (I tried to take a picture of holding one up for y'all to judge by but it doesn't show it very well) that are really flimsy and split down the middle and just not knotted well, and I can't seem to get them to improve with combing or rolling or anything. Is this one of those things that will work itself out with time or do you guys have any ideas as to what I can do to help them out?

Here are the pics:

Also, how long do you think it will take for them to start smoothing out and locking up?

Sorry if I'm being an obbsessive compulsive dread-newbie and asking too many stupid questions...
