Hard to get an exact off of those pics but leaning toward galexea aka tooth coral.

Thanks for replying! Looking at some bigger pictures of Galaxea online it seems quite possible. Much appreciated.

Wave your hand a bit in front of it to get it to close up a bit , I agree it looks like galaxia but usually they have really prominant corallites as well as distinct arcospheres could be tubinaria possibly. Maybe even a retracted goniopora.
Seeing it fully retracted would get you a more accurate ID

Goniopora would be my guess.

Yeah I was thinking a retracted Gonipora stokesi too.

Wanted to see if the septal ridges were prominent.
