Possibly a plating monti of some sort;- Montipora monasteriata, is the only thing i can find that is even close.

it does have this type of surface however it has two mouths ( thoughs two humps on the coral in my pic) and seethrough fan shaped things come out of it when its feeding. Does a Montipora monasteriata have this?

i think you will find they are vermitid snails that have settled inot the coral and are no actually part of it.

Very difficult to say from the photo but could possibly be a type of monti.
