Its kinda cool that this has been a day of this thread ( been following) and nobody can quite figure it out.... it's like your CC is saying 'oh yeah? Well I'm gonna go try this just to mess with everyone!'
Love it, CC looks plenty healthy meantime....

I just thought of something. Did a head break off by accident, maybe? Perhaps what we see is the head falling and stretching the skin with it?
No, this head just slowly elongated and then started separating like this.

Never seen that personally from candy canes but it definitely looks like polyp bail out, imo it’s not necessarily a bad thing, I have a blasto colony that forces out polyps as it grows, usually 3-5 heads 1-2 times a year, I like it as it’s is free frags without having to cut anything up. A little stony base is on the polyps base that you just glue on a plug
