Would you be able to take more in focus images? And maybe a scale, just in case there's any ambiguity there! :)

Thanks for doing that things with the photos and I would but I’m waiting on it getting delivered and the seller hasn’t given a size he’s just said it’s small in size

The long and robust genal spines compare well with: Diademaproetus sp. mail?url=http%3A%2F%2Fmail.yimg.com%2Fok%2Fu%2Fassets%2Fimg%2Femoticons%2Femo71.gif&t=1613928511&ymreqid=23281213-8dc1-3cff-1c55-440003018400&sig=2zSUe8I5FP1bR4FyDDTQtQ--~D

That’s for the help I’ve messaged the seller and he’s said he thinks it’s a Lepidoproetus lepidus, but He's not 100 percent sure

In Europe Lepidoproetus lepidus is a Czech taxon. The name Lepidoproetus has subsequently been reclassified as Phaetonellus for the German taxa.

Phaetonellus is reported at the upper Emsian Dill-Mulde, but the pleurae have spiny terminations as well as a complement of spines on the pygidium.
