Who has dropped the ball? The referee?! If the referee drops the ball after he interrupted the game the ball is in play when the ball touches the ground. It isn't allowed to score a goal directly from a dropped ball, two players have to touch the ball before the goal counts.

To really know for sure you have to check it with a good quality gauge, just like the pros do before a game.
