When I bought a leather it's polyps opened the day I got it. Then it closed and was shrivelled for nearly a week, my LFS told me not to worry and explained the shed (slough) sure enough it shed its murky skin and re opened, bigger and brighter than ever! I read that they do this when moved or new to a tank and sometimes just after a time they like new skin!
