Polearm Master states:
While you are wielding a glaive, halberd, pike, or quarterstaff, other creatures provoke an opportunity attack from you when they enter the reach you have with that weapon.
So if you are wielding a weapon with 10' reach and an enemy starts their turn 10' away, do they provoke the opportunity attack when they move closer to only 5' away?

A creature within your reach already cannot enter your reach.
To “enter” your reach, as required by Polearm Master, a creature must go from not being in your reach to being in your reach. This is what the word “enter” means. If a creature is already within your reach, and they move around within your reach, they have not entered your reach.
