Looks normal, always check basic chemistry.
Corals may expand and contract, appearing drawn, typically normal.

It looks normal and allow any coral at least 2-3 hrs after lights on to fully open

i did it’s kinda open now but it’s not really puffy as it was a while ago
double check:

Salinity ( range is 1.024-1.026)
tank Temp (range is 77-79)
PH ( range 8.0 -8.3)
alk ( no higher than 9 )
