The grip is not bad if i understand what you mean. If you transition to north south, and your grip lifts under his armpit. Itll force his forehead down the mat. From where you play from a sprawled position with your usual options.
If you wanted to play from where you were. You could have grabbed one of his leg and flatten him on his back to get proper sidemount.
This is interesting because I often go N-S instead formm that position. but I usually let them decide. if I can get my arm in there it usually feels like a win-win situation for me. I guess if thye had a really solid half-guard it'd be a problem...
