Yup, that's just it's mouth. When it spits out it's digested food, it will look just like the picture you posted, nothing to worry about. It can take a couple weeks for the nem to find it's "spot". Until then just let it roam.

splitting is generally due to stress. it could be splitting, but that's sort of how an anemone poops. it deflates and opens it's mouth and expels a brown substance. if the mouth keeps getting wider and wider instead of bouncing back in a day or so, it might very well be splitting.
if it's not pooping, but splitting, i would make it a point to find out what it's not happy about.
