Making two 6 gallon batches of blueberry wine. I had a question about adjusting the total acidity. I didn't check it when I first started the wine and I had added acid blend. Should I have checked at the beginning? Should I check the acidity and adjust it now? Or should I wait and check/adjust it when it's finished? What should it be?

Measuring TA is not so important as the PH . You can leave it untill the fermentation is done .

In fact , the PH should always be adjusted . Before and during the fermentation .

I agree with Hector… In general you can adjust acid to taste at just about any point. I recommend you do a trial first, just to be sure.
