What is the water quality and salinity like?

Do you have white light as well as blue light on the tank?
Corals need a full range of colour spectrums in the light, not just blue (actinic).

If you can post a picture of the coral under normal white light, it might show more information.

Is it rigid in that pose or floppy? Ordinarily I wouldn't advocate touching a coral since it adds stress but if it's floppy then there may be physical damage somewhere around the fold site. If it isn't damaged and is rigidly in that pose, then it deliberately wants to be like that and may be trying to pull free, which means something about placement, flow, lighting, etc is badly bothering it, orr there is a tankmate or something in the rock stressing it from the direction it moved away from. The GSP appear to be touching it but normally I would expect GSP to be stressed by a toadstool not the other way around.
