That is pretty darn strange. That thing is tiny. I thought it was a mushroom lol. If that is indeed a flower, I'd clip that. Flowers can be taxing. But maybe it means your vft will be very hardy and vigorous in the future.

Did the seedling survive??

If it were me I would just cut it off, or maybe use it for propagation ;)
