Foamwork Help

So I'm sorta at a stand still with my foamwork. I kinda know what needs to be done, but I just want some feedback on the current work. Any type of criticism, redlines, comments, or anything I will gladly accept. I'm really a bid confused on eyes. I am most likely going to be making them out of buckram and fun foam for 3d eyes, but I may try and do the bouncy ball eye idea. Also I'm going for a realistic suit. 

Here is some views.

Jaw spings?

I didn't see this in the memories so sorry if I missed it.

I'm attempting to make my first cast head(resin or poly-foam haven't decided yet)
and I was wondering what people use to keep the jaw from just hanging open. I was thinking I could use a spring but I'm not sure where exactly to put it or what kind I should use.

Are there other options that work better than springs?

here is a little diagram that shows what I was thinking of doing for the hinge.

Thank you in advance for any suggestions.

PS. the sculpture in the pic is a long way from being finished.
