Hi all, I am new to wine making an I am unsure of what is goin on with my must. Only several hours after pitching the yeast it appears to have a white mold growing on top. Im not sure if this is just part of the fermentation or what.

It is probably a clump of yeast

Just to make sure, here is a photo. It just seems a bit unusual for being yeast clumps. But hopefully you are correct.
