During my bowel movement. I noticed regular stool then flatten ribbon stools within the same bowel movement. Any reason why?

In brief: Stool change

That can be associated with processes near the anus.
Tumor, poly, inflammatory bowel, sphincter problem. Seeing your doctor and getting rectal exam would be helpful.
