Adhesive

Hi All, I laid down Home Decorator vinyl plank flooring, it looked good but I notice that some of the ends are lifting slightly, they will lay down with slight pressure, I plan on installing more of the same thing, I am wondering if it would be OK to apply a thin bead of adhesive on each end to prevent this from happening to the new install.

Baseshoe is what would typically keep it down on the ends. Floating floors need to float.

I should rephrase the question, adhesive for the end to end joints where they mate together.

They should lock together on their own without adhesive. If you need adhesive you are doing something wrong.

Did you use a hand floor roller to press down on the seams?
