Extinct porpoise skull piece? (nose tip?)

Found on Myrtle Beach, January, 2022

 

This is not a sting ray barb. I've picked up hundreds of those.

 

This is curved, not straight, and has a tiny bit of serration on one edge only, though it's very difficult to see in the picture. Both sides have texture (sting ray barbs are flat on one side).

 

I'm including an image I found of an extinct porpoise (Eurhinodelphis) and it looks a lot like the tip of the snout - to me, anyway. Thoughts?

This looks like some of the catfish spines I have found in my local Eocene beds.  

I just looked up some pictures. It does look like that! Thank you!
