This is called a blind teat....I would contact a vet to discuss options...the vet could do a laser opening which relief pressure, and allow milking...but the opening, if I understand correctly, wont close naturally and will most likely leak and bacteria could enter causing mastisis...her best bet is to let that side dry up ... and dont breed her again. Bottle feeding the kids might be the easiest way to dry her up all together..other wise..be sure the kids are getting enough from the one side..weight them often to be sure they are gaining weight...keep a close watch on the one side..Lavender Ess. oil helps with mastisis...might be good as a preventive rub...use 1-2 drops in a carrier oil such as coconut...rub on the udder...do not message or stimuate the udder...if she get masitisis a vet will be needed since you will not be able to treat in the normal way by infusing the teat...best wishes
