You cannot undo a merge. What you can do is create a profile for the other Solomon with sources after first checking whether he already exists and then, detach errant children from one profile and attach to the other. I would also put a note at the top of each profile (with link to the other) stating the issue. Hopefully this will stop them being merged again.
