can you upload a picture? could possibly be brown jelly disease. Look it up and see if it is similar.

The picture is of a wall type hammer, which from the picture it looks more like the common died off instead of the brown jelly diseases that you would get on a single head.

Usually it would look similar to this picture.

Thanks for the help TheJayReefer and Marrone, but I cut the head that was sucked in so much I could see its skeleton.When I cut it though it was mushy and dead.I hope that the other head stays aliave.
