Worms on Java Fern Leaves

I have a 2.5 gallon tank with an anubias nana, dwarf hair grass, and a java fern. All seem to be growing well, but this morning I woke up and found something that resembled a worm growing out of the tips of two of the leaves of the java fern. They were not moving, however.

Is this something I should be concerned about? What is it?

They are the roots of baby java ferns. They will grow off the bigger leaves.

Yup, looking like roots to me. Freaked me out the first time I noticed them on my Java Fern.
