Soft corals will deflate when they are stressed. Did you cut that area off or is it doing that on its own? If it is falling apart like that on its own, I would cut that area off immediately and see if the situation improves.
Have you seen anything bothering it? The aiptasia behind it would be a good candidate if it was facing the other direction.

Lol that's just a background
What should I use to remove the bad area ?
Just a very sharp knife ?

A sharp knife or scissors will work to cut that area off. And that is a background with something that looks like aiptasia on it? Lucky!

Just snip around it. No need to cut off all the good tissue, just enough to ensure whatever the issue is that it is removed completely.
