Question Newbie stuff...

Hi, I am quite new to Aikido (5th Kyu) and would like help with the following...

1) When the sensei claps for us to kneel down and watch and my gi is coming apart can I neaten it while I watch him or should I wait until we next get up?
2) Should I bow to the Shomen when I leave the mat? Only one of the aikidoists (sorry if I made that word up) do this, but we all bow when we leave the dojo and when we enter the dojo AND the mat.
3) The whole blending thing... is this something I will get with time, coz at the moment I can't get it at all
4) What should I do if someone hold my wrists so tight when practising a technique that I can't move them?

Thanks for all the help
