Some more info might help:

What kind of lighting do you have?

What kind of flow do you have?

Is the coral in question in high flow, low flow, high light, low light?

What are your water parameters? (NO3, PO4, temp, pH, Ca, Alk, Mg)

What else is in the tank besides this coral? How is it doing? Any other issues?

I'd move it up higher. Give it more light and more flow. I get great growth on my birdsnest in high flow and Medium to high light.
