    Nope!!! No idea what's going on... at least by the pic!! All I see is a bright flash of light in the middle ( are aliens landing inside the coral??!! ) My 1st guess however without seeing it is that it is probably budding a new branch.

    Yeah, that's exactly what's happening.
    My frogspawn divides crowns in this manner about every three months. Now the last time however instead of propagating by division, it sprouted out some new buds along the main stalk!
    You can see the crown on the far left is also dividing as well. I have had this coral for about four years now, and I have truly lost count how many times it has split by division and how many frags I have given away!

    what can happen-usually happens

    Sumpfin and all others,

    Yeah, they usually grow new heads in 2 ways. Either complete new shoots pop up around the base of the established heads or if a head splits, it will usually create the bump, which is new skeleton growth first.

    Did I not just say this in my above reply, and I thought I gave a pretty discriptive picture as well
