Looks like a Sargassum fish. Camouflaged to blend in with seaweed and is an ambush predator.

Welcome to the forum!

do you think it could be a mix between a sargassum fish and puffer fish? Is that even possible?

Your image was a little blurry, so my ID may be off. But no, those species can't interbreed.
