Like I left my house so no picks right now but like an anemone would suck its tentacles in but... Ok the best way to explain it is like a rose blooming but backwards like from the flower back to the bud

No, its not normal softies will often times close up due to low Alk or too much light.
What are the parameters on your tank?

With an alkalinity test kit. Red sea is a good choice.
