Pupae in cotton?

Hey everyone. I have been looking after a few L. Niger queens and they are doing well. My only issue right now is one of the set ups with pupae looks like one of them is wrapped in the loose cotton that was pulled out a bit by the queen. Is this dangours? Will this impact the worker and stop them from being able to stretch out and cause them to disform when they are waiting on the exo to harden?

Sorry for late reply but everything is okay. The queen moved them. I guess I just paniced.
