Hello, my name is Rusty. Those keys are broken and need to be replaced. The oil likely penetrated the plastic, causing it to expand and crack. They are reparable at home with the help of YouTube videos, or you can take it to a music repair shop. Which would you like to do? You'll need to replace those keys in order to get them to stay in place.
