Floating snails

Hi so my mystery snails have been floating lately. Should I be worried at all?

are they closed up and floating or just slithering along the surface of the water?

Closed up and floating. Not completely closed though you see the snail just a bit

I wouldn't worry to much, my snail's float around sometimes too! They just get air trapped. If your really worried pick them up and sniff them if they've passed they really stink!
