Default Infection?

This has been dry hopping for 10 days now and I am going to bottle it to day I will have an update with the FG soon here are the pics
It did not look like this yesterday it was evenly distributed across the top now today it has began clumping as you can see did not know if it was a sign of an infection.

Ok bottling got pushed back another day thanks for the replies I will let you know the FG and smell/ taste tomorrow. I hear an infection will most likely lead to bottle bombs how true is this?

See the bubbles and that is 24 hours after the first and it was not like that is it an infection if so can I still bottle and drink? Would it help or hurt to cold crash if it is an infection?

Ok I now know that they are yeast rafts and not an infection so what to do next? Age longer to see if they will settle out on their own? Cold crash immediately then bottle or just bottle? history: It was in primary 3 weeks with no floaties when I transferred to 2ndry it sat 9 days then I dry hopped it has been 10 days with dry hopes and the floaties and extra bubbles didn't come about until last three days of dry hopping. It is the shot caller IPA kit from Austin Homebrew.
