QM, Strong Force and Baryons

Could you please explain in a simple way how strong force inside baryons really works? I mean, gluons are messengers of strong force but they are also sensitive to strong force(they are charged) so they are producing other gluons as messengers of their own chrage. What mechanism prevents to grow the number of gluons in lets say proton to go to infinity? They are annihilating with each other so statistically there is still finite number of gluons or is there another mechanism? Thank you!

How protons became closer during Big bang process?

I know that strong nuclear force is a short-ranged force. So, I would like to know how protons became closer during Big bang process. Is it because of very high temperature and pressure during this ?
Please explain me.
Thanks in advance.

In nuclear fusion the nucleons (protons and neutrons come closer because of their high energies. When they come closer to each other in the order of distances of fermi (10^-15 m) nuclear force – the strongest force in nature, comes into play
