Wilting leather

I have just yesterday bought this new leather coral. After putting it in my tank it hasn't fully expanded like it was at the shop. Today I moved it and have become really worried. It has wilted and almost just laid over. Is it just stressed from the tank move and now touching it again? See attachments for current photos.

Leathers shrivel up form time to time. They shed skin as well. It isn't uncommon for them to stay shriveled as it is it sheds a layer as it acclimates into a new system. If it isn't better in a couple days, might need to look at parameters and flow in the system.
