As per title, I have had rhabdocoela in my tank, this is the first time I'm seeing a rather different looking worm, the head isn't pointed, but it there's this part that make it looks different.

Can anyone help me identify?

This is a video of it moving.

I would go with rhabdocoela. They stay relatively small and are in many tanks.

Planaria actually grow larger and it's easier to see a defined arrow shaped head than on rhabdos.

I would also go with rhabdocoela because you cannot see any eyes and the head is not triangular. As I am sure you know, rhabdocoela are harmless and are likely because of built-up muck and food in substrate.
