What looks like a baby star

I have a couple of "critters" on my glass that looks like baby star fish. They are no bigger than the tip of an ink pen cap. What can I do to promote the growth of these?

There are a few star species that are just "small", and not babies. There are mini brittle stars that look like tiny brittles or serpents, but never get big at all. There are also other frequent hitchhiker stars (some are snow white, some have more of a yellow-tan-brown tint to them). Take a look at the "hitchhiker & oddities page on our web site - there are a few pics of these hitchhiking stars there ---> http://home.attbi.com/~76fxe/oddities.htm
