It is most likely a piece of whale bone

No it doesn't look like a bone because it's only a piece of one, but the material itself is bone substance

Three inches wide is not really big as far as whale ribs go.

Agree with the partial whale bone. 3inches wide might not be big for a whale... but maybe the whale wasnt big. Could be a segment off a splintered jaw but usually those have a little curve. I'll include a picture of a broken jaw i found in many pieces and yours reminds me of an outside section towards the rear where its straight.

But not all cetaceans were big either. ;)
