Default Newly transplanted pup splitting at base

Is this amount of splitting at the base normal? This is a newly transplanted pup. Definitely not overwatering!

They will shed layers as they grow, they also can become choked. If it is not growing out the top it may be choked.

Just treat it like any other pup. If is if healthy, but choked, it will split the existing pseudostem and continue growing a new stem, with no adverse affects. Be patient. You can't really fix it, just make it worse. Bananas are pretty resilient.
