Help identifying tooth

Is it possible to narrow down what type of mosasaur a tooth came from? Found a tooth but it looks different from the typical ones I see all over google. Thanks!

Also I found these other teeth as well, I think that the skinny pointy one is enchodus but not 100% sure. The broken one possibly plesiosaur?? Any thoughts? All teeth from NJ Cretaceous area

The mosasaur tooth looks like it might be a pterygoid tooth. 

See this page for the species found in New Jersey brooks.

Awesome thank you! In that article the tooth looks almost identical to the mosasaur Proghathodon species, smaller and very curved like I’m leaning twards that. Any idea on the last 2 pictures? I think plesiosaur?

If they were plesiosaur teeth, I would be expecting a form more broad than the ones in the last picture.

 

Could be fish teeth IMO

The first one is a Mosasaur tooth, probably Prognathodon. The next two are Enchodus fangs. The fourth is a worn down sawfish rostral, Ischyrhiza mira.
