Pleco ID question

I bought this pleco about 8-9 months ago at the LFS, it was labeled as an Albino Longfin Bristlenose Pleco.

From what I understand, the bristles on a BN plecos snout should have started developing before now. My plec doesn't have any bristles at all, so I think it may be possible that it was mislabeled at the LFS? Any idea which plec this is?

I just asked a question similar to this about my BN pleco, However this does look like an Albino long finned BN pleco and from what I have read in the few minutes after posting my question is that females don't always develop their spikes or something along those lines. Sorry I couldn't be of more help but your BN is gorgeous, I have wanted one of those for so long lol

My ABN is a female and has not one bristle. The first few months I had her I kept panicking because she wasn't growing any bristles and I was convinced the LFS had her tank labeled wrong. I was afraid that she was going to develop into some albino monster pleco that would eat all my plants. She never did, she's a darling little four incher.

Your fish looks like a beautiful long finned ABN. Nice fish.
