A lot of times anemones do that to expel waste. I’d say you’re ok.

Pro tip for future pics: turn off the blues when you take the photo. It makes it clearer so readers can see. :)

It is probably taking a poo. Although, just watch it and make sure it inflates after and stays that way. Then watch for a few days to make sure it does not deflate often and has a gaping mouth.

If it is a poo, it happens lol. This is normal, but just watch the nem for now and make sure all is well.
