Is my new torch ok?

I'm not sure what to be looking for so i just wanted to hit the community and ask if you think my torch is ok. I've only had it for a few days and one of the heads appears to be healthy, opens up fully during the day, etc. The other head rarely opens up. When i bought it, both heads were open. Until today, the weaker head was kind of close to a rock so i look to see if maybe there was an aiptasia back there but there isnt. I pulled it further out from the rock today to see what happened. The exposed tentacles seem ok, no slime on them or anything. Every once in a while, it'll open up a little bit but not much. Should I be concerned?

Give it a few more days. If you see the weaker head start to come apart you`ll need to break off that head before it infects the other head. It will have the brown jelly disease. But give it a few more days to see if it gets better.

may have been. seems to be doing a lot better now. i just seem to recall the tentacles being a lot longer. probably wrong about that. it is opening a lot more now. about 1/2-2/3 the size of the larger head now
