New head on duncan?

Is this a new head forming on my Duncan? I'm pretty sure it is but I just want a second opinion

It may be a second head growing. Its a little hard to see from the picture but here is a picture of mine growing a new head. Actually there are 4 growing at once from all around. Hopefully you can see it since I'm taking my picture via a cell phone.

It looks like there is another mouth already there and the rest of it is outlined

Duncan's are hardy coral. They can do well in tanks that are doing decently, even with some nitrates, or even by force feeding them. With things in pristine conditions they will take off like weeds.

No, they aren't reproducing weeds like Kenya trees that drop sproutlings. It will just turn into a giant bush.
