I admit, it could be anything. It could be a key chain. It could be a some kind of cell phone. It could be some kind of weird plumbing device. It could be nothing at all -- maybe it's just the way the cloth is folded.
But my crazy idea is that if something unidentified looks like a particular object, and the object is located in the place where you would expect to find that object -- it's probably the object you have in mind.
Likewise, you have an employer that offers nonsensical reasons for a job termination, you have a medical center that makes nonsensical diagnoses, you have a librarian that calls the police for no reason -- it looks like they're all in cahoots; it looks like racketeering. Of course, yes, it could be anything. But, I'm just telling you what it looks like to me. Then again, maybe it's -- as they say -- the way the cloth is folded.
