Imho....your waterbath is not hot enough
The sections are not expanding
Sure, if you are floating sections directly onto water bath....baaad
Place your ribbon on a slide that has 20% alcohol on it
Float that onto your waterbath
The alcohol teases the sections nicely so....no creases.
NB: Leave in the waterbath until you see no creases
Works for me every time
NB: I do many species of gut and have no problems if.....I do the above

Good luck
