Hello IFoundNemo,

It sounds like you may be seeing an exposed breeding tube or genital papilla. Possibly even a prolapse of the uterus or intestines. (exposed organs that shouldn't be exposed)

A photo would be great to help diagnose the issue. It may be completely natural.

I am assuming you are referring to your black Balloon Molly?

Genital Papilla : is the tube through which the sperm and eggs pass on fish and can only usually be seen during breeding. Angelfish has a genital papilla.(Fish Lore Dictionary)

My female Mickey mouse platy has something similar, and it's been that way for awhile. She's very active and healthy.

Laying on the ground could be a sign of pregnancy or many other things. If you can post a pic someone will probably be able to tell if she's pregnant.

Is this a new thing or has it been since you bought her?

My female mollie ended up with hers protuding constantly after about her 6th batch of fry (with me, I bought her adult). I reckon it's just like humans and childbirth Sometimes when things are stretched they just don't go back right!

Pics are best.

Maybe check out her gills? Compare the movement to other mollies, make sure her gills have a nice colour.

She moves like the others. She has had the white part and sitting on the bottom for about two and a half weeks. I attached a photo but you cant see her too well? haha.
