Is this a tooth? Found under Whiskey Bridge

I found this under Whiskey Bridge in College Station, TX. It is tiny ( See reference photo of the size against my palm). Dark, slick, some brown specks, but the color is mostly black, no ridges. I went to Whiskey Bridge looking for a shark tooth.

It could be a sharks tooth, it has the right shape. With better (sharper) pictures from all sides we can make a better guess.

My guess is that this is an fish tooth, but indeed better pictures are needed.

Best regards,

Nick.

Looks like something fish-related to me as well, I've picked up a couple similar fossils last year, when I was done showing my boss villas in Athens; I got a couple days of free time and went fossile hunting on the beaches and in the creeks, and I found teeth looking like this one in a place (Samaria Gorge) where several fossilized fish had been found.
