Recently caught a massive wild swarm

I just caught a massive wild swarm yesterday and put the cluster into an empty deep 10 frame… the only problem is that there’s so many bees that I can’t even check to see if I caught the queen (I likely did since they haven’t left) and they fill in almost every gap in between the frames. Should I leave them as is or put another super on top of them for more wiggle room? The frames that are in there are just foundations so they likely can’t swarm again (unless the queen tells them to march to a new home). I’m just hoping that the sheer size of the colony and lack of space won’t drive them off. Also, I have a top-feeder that I’m making sure is well stocked so that they don’t starve.
