# Why can't the Higgs vacuum energy clump to galaxies and act as dark matter (instead of dark energy)? [closed]

The Higgs field has a nonzero vacuum expectation value which contributes to the energy density of the Universe. Energies contribute to the curvature of spacetime and affected by gravitational potential wells. Therefore, I have the following questions:

Why can't the Higgs vacuum energy clump to galaxies (the gravitational potential wells created by the galactic mass distribution) like dark matter do? Why isn't it more likely to found around the galaxies?

In other words, why can't the Higgs condensate be a candidate of dark matter(instead of a component of dark energy)?

Note Please understand that it is not a duplicate of my previous question here which is related to Higgs boson, not the Higgs condensate density $v$, an energy density in space that can couple to gravity.
