The foot of the cigar is actually the lit end and the head is the end you put in your mouth. If you go online you can order a draw poker for this exact sort of thing(inserted into the middle of the cut end of the cigar and it loosens up the cigar giving you a better draw. Some people use a toothpick from what I have heard but a if you have the extra funds a poker is a decent investment.
Sometimes though you just get a cigar from time to time with a seemingly impossible draw, unless this is a constant problem with your cigars i wouldn't be worried about any humidification issues. Hope your next cigar is better than your last.
