FED Windup Question

I need a rule reference on the play in a FED game:

R1 and R2. F1 is in the windup position. He starts his motion and stops. PU says he can do this and it is not a balk. Is he correct?

Sound

I believe what the umpire said was "we don't get any carom or anything." I think he was talking about how the ball bounced off the wall.
