A closer picture would help. Do they retract into the live rock or just close up if touched? Can you tell if there is a skeleton?

Well my opinion is, they look like very bleached zoo polyps. They may regain some color over time. How long have you had them?

Well, the small tentacles around the edges are what make me think it's a zoo polyp of some type. I don't believe it's any type of anemone. Give it some time and post an update for us, to see how they are doing/changing.
