Is my moon cactus rotting ? :/

This is my first time planting a moon cactus and it was given to me around 2 months ago... Initially I placed my cactus under direct sunlight after watering but then I transferred it to another window with no direct sunlight but in the morning it's still v bright. Now I have realised that the top part of the moon cactus is getting kinda black and i am worried that I might not be able to save it... :( Could it be me overwatering it or did I do anything wrong? Pls advise and thanks in advance !

Rot is soft, is it soft? It might be a reaction to lower light levels, or it might be reverting.

It might be a normal coloring for this. Basing on the fact that the side pups has it also. If not soft or mussy, I would say it is normal. I know that once rotting accures, nothing can save it.
