Hammer Coral Parasite Eggs?

Just got this hammer recently. Noticed these "eggs" inside the ends of the tentacles.

Never mind this post, just realized the image didn't post, and it's just the hammer preparing to spawn.

Was this a branching hammer or the regular hammer. Hammers are beautiful corals

Regular, it's a gorgeous frag. That's why I was so concerned, but now it looks like my percula is biting it?

I started off with a small frag and it grew to the size of a volley ball. My clown loved it.
