Glad everything is alright.
Did you trim the wick? All candle wicks should be trimmed to under 1/2 inch. The longer the wick is, the bigger the flame will be and the more irregular it will burn as the wax will be heated up too quickly/unevenly. I assume being dollar store candles, the wicks are not nicely trimmed and consistent.
