Maybe a stupid coral question

Is it normal for corals to close up at night? I have a some shrooms, bubble coral, and flower pot coral and it seems that they close up at night sometimes and other times they remain open. Is it unhealthy for them to close or is this normal? TIA

In this hobby .... the only "Stupid" question is one not asked!
Sometimes I notice my corals open and sometimes they close. Most of my softies will close up, but the LPS seem to open up and feed at night.
