Default kissing while pulling their beaks

it seems very odd but I saw my little ones kissing then jack pulling the beak of jill. is it normal? the pulling is not that violent..not to mention my brother told me that jack tried to mount jill for about 3 times and now im worried that she might lay eggs...im trying my best to reduce the hour times to not breed. im kinda worried now

When budgies lock their beaks when kissing, they make it so fast that it seems there is some pulling, but this is completely harmless, in fact it's normal and part of the courtship rituals.
If despite the measures you have been taken to prevent breeding behaviour, your budgies are still very much passionate, then the best thing to do is to house them in separate cages for a while and give them both the needed time to cool off and come out of breeding condition.
If you have a spare cage, place Jill on that cage and don't give her anything that she can potentially use as a nest: https://talkbudgies.com/budgie-breedi...want-eggs.html

In most cases, egg laying is only triggered after a few days in a row of consistent matings, so at this point chances are very high that your budgie will not lay any eggs.

thanks for the advice I was only bit worried when I saw the beak pulling since it was the first time they done it and it was when I am covering the cage for sleep time. this morning instead they haven't done anything beside rocking that bell pepper that I gave them and yes their place is well illuminated and there are no things such as papers that can trigger jill to make a nest...my cage has a grate that separates it. I didn't even saw her come down unlike Gina
