Coral Identification & possible issue with it

Hello,

LFS stated it's a favia. I want to know 100% what this coral is. And does it look like there's a issue with it. It was orange & purple when I got it.

Thank you.

Looks like a favia/favities of some sort but that picture is really blurry.

Thanks knighthawk. Thought the right photo was good enough.

Has the "noodleball" retracted? Is that normal?

The noodleballs have come back.

So as Knighthawk assumes, it's a favia?

I only have one favia, so I'm certainly no expert, but mine doesn't look anything like that. I do have chalices that look like that though.

Have been looking thru photos to compare, and I too think this compares to chalices
