Is this common?

Maybe this is a dumb question but I'm curious if anyone can tell me what my hammer head is doing? I just target fed him some microvert that I bought from Petco. What's this reaction and is it normal?

Did you squirt it directly into the coral.It looks like the hammer released its protective mucus.

It is just a protective reaction,it should be fine.When spot feeding try gently blowing the food close to the coral were it will float over the coral instead of blowing directly into the coral.
