    Can't see it clearly - is it 6 sided, if so a torx bit should fit

    It looks to be surface mounted- meaning a torx driver won't work.

    Looks more like an ornate nail to me.

    Not the best of photos though.

    Looks like a nut for screw, can you access the other end?

    I'd say that's a custom made tamper proof for someone because it doesn't look completely symmetrical.
