If you have a stubborn one, wrap it up with embroidery floss, hemp, or twine. Keep it in for one or two washes, and the problem will typically fix itself! Locks on the side you sleep on will often be a battle during the maturation process, but wrapping really does help. Just be sure not to leave it in for too long (a month is generally “too long” if they are still maturing), and everything should work out just fine.
Locks often seem flat while they are semi-mature, but after about a year, they develop into a perfect round shape without any sort of wrapping, maintenance, or encouragement.
In the event that your lock permanently matures in a flat shape, you can brush it out and start over again with more diligent maintenance. I had to do that to a few ones on the side of my head I sleep on, and now those are some of my roundest, smoothest locks.
