    How long have you had it and in what size tank? That may help rule common out.
    A side picture may also help a little more as we could see more of the pattern.
    To me it doesn't really look like a common From what I see in those pictures it looks like a peppered cory like pattern(not saying its a cory just coloring), more splotches then the spotted pattern on a common pleco.

    Looks like a common. A closer side shot might help.

    Looks like a young common, but bear in mind that there are several species sold as "Common" Plecos. This pattern is one of the less common Commons, if that makes any sense!

    id love to see a second pic to be sure, ideally diff angle.
    though, i will agree that many have gone by the title common and there are also variations, just as there have been with bristlenose.
