Looks like a candy cane that some of the heads have already gone bad. Keeping the water quality good should help it recover.

Tell me about your lights. Type, photoperiod, age and type of bulbs, etc.

My candy canes don't like intense light, and dropped heads until I got them lower in the tank or shaded them. I also noticed what looks like a bleached anemone in the background, which can be the result of light shock (too intense light too fast) or insufficient light.
It is a violation of federal law to use this product in a manner inconsistent with its labelling.

Kryptonite candy canes are weird , put it in a low flow area and a low light area till the flesh stops receding but do try and feed it brine and mysis it helps the healthy strong heads make it. I had one with 10 heads all I have are 2 left now
