Uhmmm if the ball is sinking down that could potentially be REALLY bad.
Since it's on the top, and gravity is in effect, it probably won't go away easily because of the added pressure, it may split more actually.

I wouldn't just take it out, but I would definitely go see your piercer, and he'll be able to tell you what you should do in this case.
Depending on the severity of your spilt he'll tell you wether it will heal and you can keep it in, or if your risking and in-growth during healing and will need to take it out.

I don't think it's normal to happen. It didn't happen to me or any of my friends that have it... I've heard of the bottom membrane splitting a bit but not of the actual tongue. But I could be wrong... I don't know everyone out there with a tongue piercing haha =P

Anywho Good Luck! =] Hope it works out!
