Massive Top Fan Leaves?

Hi, hello, how’s it going?

 

Vertically challenged Indica help? 

 

This is my first grow and I would just like a sanity check if that’s okay? So I’ve been vegging these for about 6 weeks now. I feel I left it a bit late for the LST but it’s just the plant was/is so short and bushy it felt like it was to stumpy to have an effect, anyway.... My question is now, do I defoliate these humongous fan leaves from the top or are they absorbing more light for the plant than they are blocking out. The bud site below seems to be doing okay in its shade?

 

any other comments welcome - they are Power Flower from RQS grown under maxibright daylight LED, fabric pots, coco, 18/6

 

THIS IS ONE OF THE MASSIVE FAN LEAVES - 3 near the top of each plant, as big as my (not small) hand

 

THE BUD SITE ITS SHADING...

Tbh the shade leaf don’t look that big imo. If you feel it’s shading you can tuck it out the way .I tend to defoliate in flower and not veg although I do sometimes remove lower growth .

Thanks! I’ve done just that, seemed to be a waste down the bottom but couldn’t bring myself to take from the top, seemed counterintuitive. I’ll wait till later in flowering. Much appreciated
