Sounds encouraging; fingers crossed!

Yes, floating stuff can appear unexpectedly (or refuse to sink) sometimes, even after fermentation. A bit of disturbance, release of airlock pressure, or the addition of hops etc etc can allow CO2 to rise, and it'll bring stuff with it on occasion.
Can also depend on the type of yeast used. Truly top fermenting yeast usually leave a persistent head or cap, even after fermentation has finished. I often get it sand I just skim it off when racking.
Best wishes

Yes, very true Dave; some types can be really quite persistent. Eager little blighters.
