Default Hello, please help me

I have a baby BTA and he has been fine barely moving around on this one rock and this morning I found him perched on my yellow polyps directly in the center of their colony. Should I try and move him or just leave him be? I don't want him to kill the Corals and then them die off and cause problems in the tank. What should I do? If it's not a problem Ill just leave him.

Give it a day or 2 they like to move until they find a space they like to call home.

I agree. If you try to move it you will likely kill it, probably easier to let the yellow polyps underneath it die than the anemone since its in the middle of the colony.
