What kind of foam do you mean? After the krausen has fallen, it shouldn't have any foam on top. Maybe a few bubbles or yeasty bits floating around, but I've never seen actual foam on top after fermentation.

Can you take a picture?

Sounds like the krausen just has not fallen all the way. Just give it time.

Just a quick thing to check also is if the airlock/blowoff tube is clogged. That would make it stop bubbling and still have krausen on top.

DId you take any gravity readings? That should be your indicator of when to rack into the secondary or bottles.

Cheers
