Yellow Polyps... Question

We bought a yellow polyps colony, they said it's a good begginner coral and we're very excited about it. Two polyps have detached from the original rock it came attached to. What does this mean? Are they spreading? or are they dying? They're loose now and those two are just sitting on little crevices on the rock they fell on. Please advise.

They may have come loose from the move. You can attach them w/ gel superglue.
here is some additional info

If you have a sm peice of lr, glue them to it and set it in another spot in the tank.

They may be spreading. I advise leaving them alone. They should multiply rapidly, you may end up with two colonies.
