    No, it looks like a beetle. Too bad you took an oblique angle picture.

    I came back from break and found another bug on my bed. Got better photos of it this time. Is this a beetle? How can I prevent them? Thanks. https://imgur.com/gallery/PNpPO22

    I answered under your picture post too. Looks like a species of Oryzaephilus, so either a merchant or saw-toothed grain beetle. This beetle is very common this year. It's a stored product pest species and in addition to normal grains, dried fruits, pasta, dry dog food, also rodent caches of food, rodent baits.
