Help for a friend

Hey all. I’ve got a friend growing some blunicorn and has a issue that is beyond me. The plant started to flower because he put it outside a little early. Then it started reverting to veg. Should he cut the buds that are there out or leave them alone? Here’s some pics. I’m just worried about bud rot if he doesn’t remove them.

Sorry if the pics suck its really sunny out and i need his help holding the plant to see the buds in the middle.

U can chop em off if u want. Depending on how long it was budding it shouldnt get bud rot. Thats usially once the bud gets trichomes and stacking up alot already… itll just reveg right off the buds
