It's branching rather than forming a wall. I wouldn't complain.

No the heads are wide to form the 'hammer'. Could be a frogspawn, but doesn't look like it from my phone.

It looks similar to my hammer. The tips are small similar to a torch but are slightly elongated like a hammer. It looks good to me, the tentacles extend more in lower flow. You probably saw it in more flow so they were retracted a bit.
