I came home today to my torch looking like this and not sure why. I've had bad luck with hammers and torches.

I have the same problem before and gave up on keeping torch corals. My guess for my case were water flow was too strong and change in lighting to affect them. Also some cleaner crews can irritate them and make them shriveled up

I’d give it a little time. Mine will do this sometimes at night and the next morning it’s fine again. I’m not sure why it does it.
Ok I'll just wait a wile and see what happens. As far as I know my parameters look good

Not that I can tell
That’s good. If it continues to stay withdrawn, could be unhappy with its location (light/flow) or it has an infection (brown jelly, etc). I have had success with iodine treatment when caught early enough if it’s the latter

From my experience by the time it’s that noticeable it’s too late to save. I did iodine (Kent Marine) dips when I saw a head staying retracted for an unusual amount of time as a precaution which had helped me. I hope it recovers for you!
