If you mean it's slipping relative to the shaft, then it hasn't been installed properly. Grips are usually installed with double sided sticky tape, so the stickum is attached to the shaft and the grip. The installer attaches the tape to the shaft, wets the outside with a solvent, then slides the grip on. When the solvent evaporates the grip is stuck to the tape and the tape is stuck to the shaft, so nothing moves. If it is, the adhesive has failed (or was never installed correctly in the first place. Get the grip replaced at a golf repair shop. It's cheap.
