Digitata grows pretty strangely sometimes, shouldn't be an issue beyond aesthetics. Could be a reaction to your flow pattern?

Or it could be like a plant growing towards the light to get more, maybe it's growing down to get away?

I've moved my flow around a lot so I don't think that flow would change its growth pattern. Light makes sense though

IME, corals go with the flow and I have seen branches grow downward like that before.

It is probably because of the flow. I wouldnt worry about it. Some of my sps have grown the same way
