    You can download the taptalk app and post it from there. It's a free app. We won't be much help without seeing what's goin on.

    Just guessing without seeing, but because snake's jaws are so flexible, sometimes snakes get their own teeth caught on their own mouth (inwardly) & if they
    cannot yawn their way out of it, you can sometimes use something like a tongue depressor or a pen (retracted) to help them un-hook & unfold their stuck teeth.

    Is this by chance what you're seeing? Yours isn't the first...it happens & usually not serious, but they can sure use our help when their teeth catch this way.
    Many friends in low places...

    They sometimes dislocate their jaws to swallow food and it can take a short while to reset itself and go back to normal .. fear not

    My guess would be either Bogertophis is right or Zincubus is right. Both scenarios are somewhat common and usually an easy fix.

    But without pics that's just a guess...
