This little dude was sold to me as a long fin bristlenose but I'm suspecting it's actually a rubber mouth and just wanted a second option. I have to say he's super adorable and does the cutest little tail waggle when he finds a good spot to feed

Can you provide a picture of the top of his mouth (Bird's eye view)

Thank you. I can't for him to get bigger so I can actually see his bristles, I'd say head only about and inch now

If it is a male the bristles will start coming in around two inches in body size, females might have bristles around the lip and might not (females only get them around the lip). Rubberlip have a much larger mouth and a different head shape. There are no long fin rubber lips (at least in the common trade, someone might be holed up somewhere breeding them, but not any pet store suppliers), that right there rules it out.
