don't do anything with it, leave it be. Mist its home if you didn't do so recently.
I have no idea why would it web itself though.

Unless you really slammed it around or pierced the ball, I would think that it is just fine.

You typically dont want to mist enclosures after the T has started molting already. Internal moisture is whats going to get a T through a molt. So as long as water was offered in some way or another up till the molt a T can molt on bone dry substrate with 0 humidity.

I can't quite understand what you mean by 'web ball', but if she did it to herself, let her go.

If you mean she's webbed like all around her, then yes, she's probably molting.

I say whatever "web ball" means just leave her alone for a couple of days. From your descriptions we don't know exactly what is going on, she could be molting or not. We won't know without a pic.
