Grass blades, bad contours recognition, separation

Is there a way to separate two contours, like if two grass blades are touching each other or lay over each other? Maybe somehow approximate a contour with a single curve? findcontours() only give one big contour back. I also want to recognize bad contours like the ones circled red. My program this far is, blur(), canny(),dilate, erode, findcontours(), recognize two same contours from frame to frame, arcLenght() to nearly calculate the lengths of a hey blade. That is not perfect at all but for now on ok.

I want to measure each grass blade that lies on a moving treadmill with a camera. The separation of the grass blades is not perfect, so often they lie on top of each other or touch each other.

Thanks for your help.

I don't know if it will do you any good. But I think what you are looking for is related to the Gestalt principle of Good Continuation. See
