Which LPS?

I bought this metallic green coral (Australian) today and put it in the tank an hour ago. It looks like a frogspawn to me. What's weird to me is that its skeleton consist of a one big head instead of smaller heads like my purple tip frogspawn.

Maybe it's splitting.

Might also be a hammer coral. They wall like that but it's hard to tell with it being retracted

Thanks. The coral's tips definitely look like a frogspawn. So it must be the wall frogspawn. It's opened up more and is acclimating well in my reef tank. Here's more recent pics.

Thanks. Every frogspawn I had seen before wasn't like this. Most stores will price frogspawn corals per head; usually $20-$25 per. So when I saw the skeleton of my new coral I was a bit surprised. But it being neon green, pretty and "Aussie" I went for it.
