Polyps on toadstool leather?

I have two Toadstool leather corals that appear to be doing well, I have had them for about 6mos. and they have doubled in size.

As you can see from the pics below they have fairly long tenticles but no polyps. That's the question. I have seen other Toadstool leathers with polyps extending from the tenticles...should mine

They look like a toadstool should look like IMO. I think they look pretty good.

Thanx a lot. If you look at the one pic you can see were the dork decided to lean over onto the heater and got burned. The coral appears to be recovering though..thank goodness, he's one of my favorites in the tank.

The colt coral is also exploding...I'm so happy experiencing success with my tank.

This has been a real learning process and one thing I have learned is that the ocean eco-system is very delicate and that the slightest change can have devastating results.
