Does it have a stony skeleton? Is the part that in contact with the live rock hard or soft?
It kind of looks like a bleached alveopora with shortened polyp stalks, but those have skeletons and 12 'petals' on the polyp heads. In the photo, it's hard to tell but it looks like there are 8 'petals' on the polyp heads. Since you can view this coral in person, if you can count 12 petals and it has a hard skeleton then it's an alveopora in bad shape. If it's a soft coral then I haven't a clue.African cichlid and saltwater aquariums

To me it looks like a xenia that's been cut off at the head. In my experience, after their cut they will grow the polyps back before the stalk and they start off really small like that
