It might have the brown Jelly disease. That head that is not opening at all looks like it might have it. If you start seeing the heads disintagrate I would break them off and throw away soon. It will move to the other heads soon. I had that happen to my torch. I had to break off 3 of the 5 heads and eventually it grew 10 more later on. This is what it looks like now.
