My favia has been growing very well and has completely covered the rock it's on. It's now basically "trapped".

The middle section is getting puffy and wrinkled as I think it's trying to grow but has no place to go.

My uninformed opinion based on snorkeling is that the natural shape for a large favia rock is a sphere. I think my favia is at that point to start growing into that shape and is therefore puffing out all the sunken in sections so that it can build the coral base under those regions and eventually access light from there too... becoming a ball...
