Sorry I’m not great with anemones but that doesn’t look good, there’s a few here that are hopefully they check in soon.
Is it a Condy? If so it is looking for a place to make it's home. They like to back into a place to live so that can protect themselves from the rear. How long did you acclimate it before you put it in your tank? I was told by several people that you should acclimate them for up to 2 hours of dripping any anemone. I can't tell if it's a Bubble Tip it's too deflated but, they need 1 1/2 to 2 hours to acclimate.
It looks like in needs a larger area to set up house. I would put some sort of food in it (do not overfeed) so it feels like home. I hope this helps.
