Reminds me of a garf bonsai acro that hasn't started to branch out. 

Thank you, I was told it was some kind of acro but couldn't remembe the name.

With its current shape it looks more like a Montipora.  🤷‍♂️

 

Compare with this M. confuse pic from Top Shelf:

Still might be an Acro....just interesting how similar it is at the moment.

Thanks for your reply also.

 

The guy I bought it from did say it was some kind of Acro.

I guess time will tell as it grows 😬

I'm just not seeing the "bumpiness" of a montipora, looks pretty smooth to me and the way the corallites are distributed my money is on the acro.  I also know they certain acros, bonsai included, have a tendency to encrust before showing signs of upward growth.   

 

You can see how it encrusts in this image.
