My Baby Ball Python can't retract her tongue fully

I normally never use these kinds of websites to ask for questions but since I can't find help anywhere I'll ask here since I hope that someone will have an answer .

My baby ball python is a pastel champagne and sadly has a bit of wobble but she looks healthy and eats fine in general. What does cause me a bit of concern however, is that sometimes she is not able to retract her tongue fully and leaves the tip of it hanging out of her mouth. I have thought of the possibility of it getting stuck because of the tightness of the scales on top of her mouth. But it also seems like her fork is somehow stuck together in a way. I hope it's nothing too concerning. Thanks for reading
