Dieing or growing

Do the white tips mean this coral is dieing or growing?

Just the tips means growth, if the whole thing is turning pale or white it could be dying. What color is the mother colony?

When I bought it they said it was supposed to be blue but I haven't seen any colors at all. Do they come later?

That's montipora digitata. There is no blue based version. There is a blue polyp one but the blue will only show up in high light. I have a purple digi that was brown like that when I got it but now is covered in purple polyps and the new growth is purpleish white.
