OK, it's part of a feather. Keep guessing. You should be able to provide the technical term.  ;)

well if it is indeed not living, it looks like one of those lollies, ie like a mint, perhaps in someones mouth! Alternatively, from the shape... well it could be one of those white sticky things you put around holes that have been punched in paper.... but that makes a little less sense  :D
