Frogspawn Head Falling Off

A frogspawn coral I picked up today has a head that appears to be detaching from the hard skeletion. I think maybe during moving him from the bag the head was rubbed and and began detaching. Right now it is about 3/4th already off and only a small section is left on.

My question is, is there anything I can do to try and save the coral head? I think at the current rate the head will just detach completely and be floating around the tank

Sometimes stress will cause a coral do do that. Have you checked for pests? When they took it out of the tank did they make sure it was deflated before lifting it from the water?

The rest of the coral does look healthy, Personally I would dip in revive just to be in the safe side.

No they didn't let it deflate, it was pretty quick you know (LFS). I don't see any pests when I looked at it but I'll keep an eye out. What do you think about salvaging him? Is it possible or is it just a goner. And if it does fall off will another one grow from that head?
