That looks like a condylactis anemone to me, which may not host a clown. If your clowns are tank bred, they may not know how to host and I have read about some people having success using a picture as you said. In the end, the fish are going to do what they want to.

As stated clowns hosting condy's do not happen very often. They are not natural hosts to clowns as condies are a Caribbean species and clowns being indo-pacific.

Condy Is likely to eat your clown if he tries to host it as well

The only way your anemone will eat your clown is if your clown is sick and and almost dead and can barely move.

I've had personal luck with clowns immediately hosting a bubble tip anemone.
