When the casing shrinks from the sides, that is a sign that it is losing moisture. This is a natural thing to see during and after fruiting. Unless it's bone dry, it should still pin, as long as you grab a spray bottle and moist the casing layer to the point where it is nearly saturated (not too much, now). Keep up the air exchange (important), keep up the humidity and occassional spraying as the casing layer begins to dry out again, and you should be ok. Expect some shrooms growing out from the sides, because the sides are exposed to light. Once the casing starts to pin, slow down or stop the misting--the shrooms should have all the moisture they need.

Frankly, I've never seen mycelium sticking straight up like that--(a result of the conditions you described, no doubt.) So your results will of course be different than if you would have started with the method you're using now. Well, now you know! Start inoculating and incubating the next batch, if you haven't already.

Good luck!

Yes, that's fine, assuming you don't have massive overlay. Your casing should look like something in the vicinity of this:
