Anyone please tell me what the heck this is at first I thought it was a brachiopod then I was like it might be a Ptychodus tooth what do you think I don’t not know where it came from.

 

About 2 cm in length

Looks like the brachiopod Atrypa to me.

Definitely a brachiopod. It's hard to say what kind without a location but someone more experienced with brachs could probably narrow it down somewhat. Some kind of atrypid?
