They will be o.k as long as they have air flow into the fry saver such as an airstone underneath them or flow from the side for example.Sometimes it happens that a few might come out too early for different reasons.

The father will continue to fan the babies right the way through up until they have all left the cave.

You do not need to feed the fry until all the egg sack has gone (approx 7 days)

Try not to have the fry saver in too bright a light or put something in it so they can have cover (as long as it is safe)

It depends if it will be safe enough as not to roll onto them if the flow is powerful.Try not to panic it sounds like you are doing well.I'm one to talk i worry about mine all the time LOL.
