What’s going on with this Monti?

My son picked out this coral (I would have picked a different one but in an effort to get him excited, I let him pick). There’s two clearly larger holes and during the day today there’s been little tentacle like things stick out. Never seen this on my monti’s so thought I’d ask before it messes with other corals. Any thoughts?

Not sure but seems like a filter feeder to me. Wouldn’t really worry about it myself. Could always glue the little hole/tube shut if you’re worried

Looks like a Spionid worm to me. I wouldn’t worry about it. It’s not part of the coral, coral just grew around it.
