I think this isn't either. 

Possibly a bone shard, but I'm getting a geologic vibe on this one. :unsure:

No evident traces of enamel puts me in the non-fossil camp as well. :(

not really leaning toward a tooth more toward a claw or the inner part of a claw....so no enamel

Suggestive shape, but lacking details and textures.

Still on the non fossil side here.

Could be a fossil. The lighting in the pics isn’t the best.  Can you take pics in natural sunlight? Natural light is very helpful

sometimes on dark objects.

Does it seem heavier than it should for it’s size? 

Pic 2 is more suggestive in shape for a claw, but I can’t tell if the material is claw or bone do to lighting I think.

I am in the geologic camp on this one also. I do not see anything that suggests fossil ...... but better pics could shed a different light.

I’m thinking geo as well. Does not look like any fossil I’ve picked from the Brazos.

It vaguely reminds me of just the tip of a crocodile claw core, but that's just an impression.
