Help with LST / my fist plant

Hi guys, this is my first time growing… and after reading lots i decide to give it a go…

i think i might have started LST too early…

thats what i did. i waited for the first 4 nodes to come out, and took the middle thing …

i LST the plant and tried to keep everything under the light, fan leaves were covering the light and i read i could take them out… i done it…

they look ok… but ( i think ) because i started too ealier, the new stems are too small and the leaves i getting big and covering the middle of them ( which i think should be getting light)

this is how they look fron the top i cannot see the the new topping because of the leaves…

thats how they are inside…

my question is…
Do I have to make the light get to the top of the new stems?

my idea was to make they get bigger so i spread them a bit and then leave it to grow tall… so i’d have 6 tops.
the problem is the leaves are getting too big and the actually stems are not growing as i thought

any suggestion on what i should do next?

Cheers guys
