What happens if new growth (1 scute) were to break off?

My squamosa refuses to attach to anything and really wants to be stuck between the glass and a rock on the sand bed.. he refuses any other spot and in the process broke off one of his scutes he just grew. How will this affect the clam?

mine did the same thing when i got it several months ago. big chunk... didnt bother it at all. before long, it will have another scute ready to replace it.
