Coral identification

Hey guys I recently got a coral frag as a gift but they donít know what it is and just picked it because it looked nice. If you can help identify it would be great!

I’ve been looking at a lot of pictures and I’m slightly convinced it’s a Favia

I vote Acan. If it turns out to be a favia, I wouldn't be too surprised, but based on this pic, I am leaning toward Acan.
