Hello is this a pygmy sperm whale tooth? Also investing in a caliper and better camera for better clarity and scale, kinda handicap at the moment. This was found in northeast florida out of the hawthorn formation.

Other angles might be helpful, top, bottom, other side, left and right.

 

Cropped and brightened:

It is a whale tooth. I do not recognize it as similar to any of the numerous whale teeth I have found/seen.

You might read this thread.  I found this tooth 8-10 years ago, never identified beyond whale .sp Much smaller but a lot of similarity.
