Slumping toadstool

I got this coral 2 days ago and did a slow drip for acclimation. During the day it stands upright with the polyps extended. The thing is that when the lights go off it retracts the polyps ( i know this is normal) and it slumps over only to go upright when the lights come back on. Is this normal?

That's normal behavior. As long as it's expanding during the day and extending it's polyps, I wouldn't worry.
