More pictures would help as this is a young fish, but just on jizz, I'd say Synodontis batensoda.

Hope that helps,

I've seen this fish on another forum.
My thought is hybrid. @Birger

Yeah, could be, from those pics it’s hard to say. A decent pic of the fish in six months would help.

I agree, let them grow some first.
They are probably a hybrid and certainly not a Mustache Catfish or Synodontis membranaceous .
In your profile you say you like dwarf Synodontis...well this would be no dwarf if it would be a real membranaceous.
