Welcome! It looks like fasciation, which happens to plants occasionally although I don't know how common it is in Agapanthus. Some pictures of this in other plants:

If it's genetic it might be prized for hybridisation (don't know if multiple flowerheads in Agapanthus is a goal amonst breeders, but if so)
