Quick question: This is torch or frogspawn coral ?

Hi I think this is a torch, but the guy at the LFS says that's a frogspawn... What's your opinion ?

(Sorry for long loading time)

That appears to be a hammer coral. So neither a torch or frogspawn lol.

My hammer looks pretty identical to that. Torches are usually much longer. It's for sure not a frogspawn lol.

Not a torch. I'm torn as to whether its frogspawn or hammer, but I dont see the little hammers on the ends so I'd say frogspawn.

My issue with it being a frogspawn is that frogspawn a usually have several bulbs on the tentacles. This does not and it looks really similar to my hammer

Without being able to see the ends very clearly I can't commit to either with 100% certainty. lol Its' a beautiful coral, regardless.
