If you can take it out of the AQ. I would just turn the dead head towards the back and out of site. The frogspawn, if it's anything like the one I have will grow and cover it up.

I believe TC was abbreviating aquarium. I'd agree, just turn it to hide it. If you can gain a purchase on it, you could also snap (or cut) the dead head off.

I have it turned now but I wanted to have it sticking out of the rock facing the front of the tank

Imagine sorta like I did my leather here

I was wondering how you cut them

I think I understand. You should be able to break it at the junction. Or you can cut it with bone cutters or a saw.

I agree with just breaking it off. That`s what I did with mine.
