I've been told my octo is a horridus. When he looks at me he bobs his head up and down. When he bobs his head down, these two little bumps are raised above his eyes.
Is this used for communication, or is it an involuntary muscle reflex

the flaps are called papillae and the leucophores are one of the cells that reflect colour along with chromatophores and iridophores
