    explain open, does it look like this?

    this is myn
    it has its teeth pointing in so it looks like its barely open, but it is,
    also, if you fed it, and the trap hasnt opened in a while, it might start to rot in alittle while. thats what happen to my dente at first

    Give it time. It is possible that the plant is in shock. Look to the new leaves and don't worry about the existing ones.

    I think i'm going to take a leaf cutting because the leaves are starting to close up. I have 4 new leaves on the way? Would it hurt my plant because it's not perfectly ajusted?

    In my opinion, if you really think the plant is a goner, then definitely do cuttings. If the plant is just in shock and you think it will recover in time, then I would advise against doing cuttings. It needs all the photosynthetic surfaces it can get.
