Welsh term or phrase: i fwcwl
Hello everyone,

Any help with this term would be appreciated. I can’t find it in any dictionary or online source.
I hope it’s not a swear word, I’ve seen it on bbc sites so I don’t think it is.

Context:
Novel title: Brodyr a Chwiorydd, by Geraint Lewis
“Y rheswm swyddogol am ei bresenoldeb oedd ymweld â rhai lleoliadau yn yr ardal i asesu pa mor addas oedden nhw ar gyfer ffilm roedd e’n helpu paratoi i’w saethu ddiwedd yr haf. Perodd hyn gryn gyffro i’r efeilliaid. ‘Os deith e i fwcwl, gwna’n siŵr bod Alwyn a fi ynddo fe. Yn y cefndir, ife. Allet ti wneud ’ny?’”
(Alwyn is one of the twins mentioned earlier)

I’ve marked this question as non-PRO because I’m not a pro in this language combination.

All help much appreciated!

Explanation:
I think this is an expression used more in South Wales, you could also say here 'come to fruition' or 'comes about/to be'
