Right. I've also seen some branch out and others grow close and bushy, as well as some that have short tentacles and others long lash type tentacles, but I've purchased frags from colonies that were branching and the frags grew bushy in my system.
I've never dove the barrier reef to see what type of environment these corals are in, so I can't tell how to make them branch out, but I will also say that every colony I ever imported came in branching. Never did I see one come in that grew in a bushy manner.

This is my Duncan, he doesn't seem to mind med to high flow , I pointed one of my power heads directly at him to clear up some cyano that had been growing on the sand around him and didn't seem to mind at all

But when I first set my tank up it took at least a month for him to start opening up completely and I also dipped him in medicinal.

Duncan's are funny. My favorite coral, to the point where I have more than one in my heavily stocked reef. I see a different colored one and I have to have it. Yours is gorgeous. It's funny how I got the one branching...and it stayed that way until the head growth exploded and now it is a huge bush of 50+ heads.

Nice Scoly, but I don't see the iPhone. Seriously, though it is a gorgeous coral.
