Some plants have flowers with no petals- just the ball. Is this another variety of the coneflower? Sometines the plant has both petaled flowers and the balls. Otherwise, it looks healthy.

I think what you are seeing are spent (completed) flowers. Cut the seedheads (what you refer to as balls) off to extend the season of your coneflowers.
