Coral identification

Iím not gonna lie, I thought it was a green star polyp lol. It was small and in the middle of the display tank so I couldnít get a good look. It was only 30$, any ideas? Click image for larger version

It might be a stretch, but hard to really tell since it is still acclimating. A good picture during lights on tomorrow might be of more help.

Doesnít have much change and thatís how it looked in the store.

Also...is this a hammer or a Duncan? I swore that was a hammer but this morning itís starting to look more like a mutated Duncan. This new fish store I went to was very weird and Iím confused by its corals lol I had wacky service anyway. My sister and I walked into the store and the owner was sleeping and didnít wake up till abt 10 mins after we were in there. Then took him 20 mins to figure out how to charge my card...

Yeah, I'd bite on a pavona for that one. Must have been raised in a frag tank with perfect flow to grow that round.
