Yep, I was going to mention that I've seen that often with yeast pre-full krausening. It blooms in some places first, looks like brains and floating ears and other weired stuff, then the rest of the yeast blooms and fills in the gaps and you have "normal" looking krausen, if you can EVER call krausen normal opinion.
