Snapped Courgette Leaf Stems

Hi all, happy bank holiday! Just a question on courgettes - I have some healthy plants but accidentally a couple of leaf stems seem to have snapped when moving them. They're still connected to the leaf and main stem and the leaves seem healthy and haven't wilted. Do you think it's best to snip them off and let the energy go towards the rest of the plant, or should I keep them on? Thanks in advance!

    If the leaves wilt and change colour snip them off. Otherwise I’d leave them alone.
