Clownfish acting weird

My male occelaris clownfish hosts my green branching hammer coral at night an today I realized it acting weird. It would lay next to the anemone and suck in its tentacles and then spit them out. It also keep its mouth open all the time. Please help I'm worried about my clown.

Read up on some stuff and he could possibly be cleaning the tentacles of the hammer because he is hosting it, it all seems normal as they do it to torch coral and frogspawn as well i wouldn't be to worried
