Welcome to CC! Are you talking about icing roses or fondant?

If you're talking about buttercream roses it could be the consistency of the icing or the positioning of your bag and tip.

You won't get a notification if they comment back on a pic. Some of us (me included) if I reply to a question on one of our pics, will send a PM to the person telling them "I replied to your question". not all do.

If you're looking for a comment back, you might go the PM route so you'll be notified.
