That looks like a toadstool leather coral. Not a mushroom. Did you get a from local store? Before you purchased did you see any polyps coming out of top of it?

If it is a leather than it is normal for it to slump like that on I occasion. If mine does I would move pump more towards it will force it to build stronger stem.

It may help. It is brand new to the tank. So give it some time. This is my toadstool leather looks similar to yours. Who Told you it was a mushroom?
