That looks like a cabbage leather coral. I wouldn't worry yet. The top one is fully extended while the others aren't. They could be getting ready to shed. Shedding is typical for soft leather corals. They will do it from time to time to rid themselves of debris and algaes.

Fluff, when you say shedding is that the same as sloughing

Same thing yes. Be especially careful with this coral and what you put with/near it. Dura's are exteremely noxious corals and can adversely affect the health of nearby corals quite quickly. Be sure to run carbon as often as possible. Preferabley 24/7 changed weekly.

Cheers
Steve
