Default Stuck buds...what would you do?

I was looking at my LC Secret Love KB's new growth today and guess what I saw? Two buds peeking out at me. They are about halfway down the leaf of the new growth (a bit below the wrinkle you see on the leaf). Should I cut the leaf/sheath? Or just leave it alone? That leaf is slightly split from the top, about an inch. Thanks!

To expand on Subrosa's comment, orchids teach patience. At this point,just observe. These often develop slowly.
