1 seedling (only) came up 'crispy'?

I have a bunch of seedlings started under lights in my basement. All of the seedlings seem happy and healthy, except for this 1. Can someone help me figure out what happened here? What went wrong?

This is a watermelon seedling, by the way. It's being grown in a self-watering tray system. I did top water to set the seeds, but I haven't top watered since.

It looks like the cotyledons got a little damaged emerging from the seed coat. Unless the true leaves come up looking bad, I wouldn't worry about it.
