Default Creased negatives and positives

Is there anything that can be done to flatten creased negatives and positives?
I've been unloading a crate of negatives and positives following a house move and just a few sets have ended up creased and I was wondering if they are salvable.

No experience of this, Nick, but a number of things spring to mind with a negative. Depending on how bad the crease is pressing under a heavy book for a few days may work, especially if the negs were warmed up in a microwave very carefully

Prints could be immersed in warm water to increase flexibility then placed between blotting paper and pressed

This is all theory bear in mind. Sadly it seem to me that if the surface of either the negative or print has been permanently damaged then you may be stuck with some damage

If there is a line of damage on either then depending on your skills with the "other kind if printing" repair might be possible by this method and then another negative made of the "repaired" print

Best of luck and let us know how it goes

Mike
