Default Fuel leaking from head button

My Reds WR5 was idling for maybe a minute and I went to take off and it seemed like it was just bogged down so I kept going in attempt to clean it out and all of a sudden it just died. Trying to restart it, I noticed fuel leaking through into the cooling head.
What would have caused this? I tried multiple glowplugs and they all leak, is the head button warped? The threads look fine and there doesn't seem to be any cracks.

If you are leaking from the glow plug hold, you might have used the wrong plug and stripped it. If its from underneath, tighten it.
