Growing zinnia seeds in compost soil, and noticed a strange brown growth on one of the seedling leaves. It has grown in size just like the seedling itself, I have no idea what it could be?

Hi JuliaJune! Welcome!

No worries that is what the seed was in. Hurray! You should be able to easily pick it off and throw it away. Zinnias are beautiful!

May you be blessed with beautiful flowers and a wonderful growing season!

It might be the shell from a seed of something you composted. When the seed sprouted it sent its first leaves right up and into the seed shell or husk.
It is light it is wearing a hat!! Rolling on the floor laughing
