Blender- Shrinkwrap modifier issue with retopology

I started to do retopology for a character, and there is a weird issue when I try and connect things together. I have the clipping option turned on for the Mirror modifier, but the two sides don't always clip at the middle.
I thought it might be a problem with the Mirror modifier at first, but it seems to be the Shrinkwrap modifier that cause the issue. When I turned the Shrinkwrap, the clipping works fine.
Does anyone know what can cause it, and how to fix the issue?

    I find the mirror clipping works best in vertex mode. Make sure your origin is at 0,0,0.  Just a general note, use snapping set to faces and closest then Project individual elements in combination with shrinkwrap.

    Something that can help when your original mesh looks very different to the shrinkwrapped result is that you can apply the Shrinkwrap as a shapekey, then delete all shapekeys first and then delete the shrinkwrap shapekey last (so it becomes the base mesh), and then adding a new Shrinkwrap modifier to keep working. This "stabilizes" the mesh.
