found  this small stone with what seems to be a worm on it ... is there such thing as a worm fossil?

I have heard of worm castings but this is different.

the last three pics are a closer view.

Could be a trace fossil. Worm fossils do exist, but their burrowing activity as a trace is far more common. Mucus helps facilitate the process.

Other body shapes are also quite capable of leaving trace fossils too, so it's not really possible to say this is a worm trace.
