Should I frag off this torch Coral Head?

I have a 3 headed torch coral. For a month 2 of the heads comes out perfect. 1 Head won't extend fully as of lately. It used to though but now it wont. No brown Jelly or nothing and it still grabs food. Just wont come out at all. Should I frag it off?

No, I wouldn't. It's too close to the skeleton. You risk killing it or maybe killing one or more of the other heads. Change the flow maybe. See if that makes a difference.

Tried that. Even took off the mp10 and put on a hydor nano behind it and still nothing. Even wet to the point to turn off the flow. Thought maybe it was splitting but nope.
