Hard to say from the pic. Have you done anything recently that might have affected it? ie changed lights, added fish, moved it? How's your water quality?

Really hard to tell from the pic, but they look really bad when they are beginning to split. They get all deflated and show skeleton. Yours do look elongated, and thats usually how they get right before they split into 2 heads. If all your parameters are OK, this could be it. Keep your fingers crossed, it could be a good thing.

I'm on an iPhone and even zoomed in its hard to tell, but it looks like it could just be splitting. I have 2 different colonies and some of the heads are splitting now, they look pretty rough too.
Good luck with them!

Yeah I'm on an iPad and same here if your waters good and you haven't messed with it added a fish that may terrorize it I would guess your okay. Hope it is splitting that would be cool.

Hey 54, I'd have to say its looking pretty bad. They don't typically look THAT bad when they split. Unfortunately, I think the head on the left is probably dead, and the other is not far behind.

it was such a nice looking piece when it was inflated
