If the little "ladder" is on BOTH sides of the formerly dropped stitch, you just didn't pull it up quite as firmly as the stitches around it, and it'll even out in the wearing and the wash.
If you do have a loose stitch right near the top of the hat, thread a yarn needle and run through some of the stitches on the inside, then run through the dropped one and through the inside stitches again, just so it can't get loose and run all the way down. There are ways to "knit" a dropped stitch after the project is finished, but most of the time it isn't necessary and the project will look just fine.
