Default Krusty krausen did not drop

This is the Brewer's Best English Brown Ale kit. Everything seems to be fine after 2 1/2 weeks in primary. I opened for hydrometer check and found this. A soft spongy krausen that did not drop. I punched through to grab a sample - found some nice clear beer.

That's a pretty thick krausen. Looks like chocolate cake. You could just skim it off if you like. Won't hurt anything.
