glueless laminate system

I bought 352sq ft. of glueless flooring from home depot-trafficmaster, southern oak. my question is I have installed it over most of the floor but it seems to be coming apart in places. spaces where they join together on the ends. should I glue the ones with spaces or should I get them tight and put screws at the wall end so they dont move. yes they are on padding made for this, over plywood. thank you in advance.....

Hi!

When you installed them, did you use a tapping block to securely fasten them into the adjoining planks?

Did you leave the required expansion gap along the walls?

Is this flooring on the second floor, above a crawlspace?

Did you also install a 6mil plastic moisture barrier?

Isn't that a full rotating lock laminate, where taping the ends damages the lock??
