As Jools says. All TSN babies look like this when tiny. The stripes will start coming out soon and will be heavily evolving until the fish reaches 2 feet and continue evolving slowly later on.

You had asked me on my YT channel yesterday (Fish Story). I am glad to see your post here! It's much better suited here.
