How do I correct my knockouts from forming big clusters of smaller blooms instead of larger roses? Is this a pruning issue?

You will want to go ahead and prune off the dead bloom down to the first 5 leaf junction with the cane if it is a hybrid tea rose. If it is another classification of rosebush prune it down to where a healthy looking leaf cluster starts. Here are some links to articles I have written on caring for rosebushes for you too:
