Is this what's called a false inflo?

It's seems that it will be branching in 3 places. But, the stub on top is smooth and round

Yes, it is called 'nubbing' or (indeed) a false inflo. It is quite common in seedlings; the advantage is that you still get the branching so more chances of blooms next year.

I agree I would rather have a false inflo than my plants just continuing to grow tall with no branching or blooms in sight.
