      I have had one like this. I would take out, sedate and use a qtip or something similar to press gently into the mouth joints simultaneously to close the mouth. Sometimes they get stuck open. Sometimes it happens over and over...sometimes it self resolves.

      BEFORE you close the mouth, look inside the mouth to ensure there isn't an ulcer that is causing it to hold the mouth open.
