Interesting. Thanks @daveharasti. I wouldn't have picked it for a H. whitei.

I've previously been sent this photo to ID a few years ago, and I also sent it to Sara Lourie for ID. The conclusion that we reached that it's likely the species is Hippocampus whitei, however, it has had the top of it's coronet either bitten off or it's a deformity.
