Can you please tell me what kind of bug this is I found it in my room and I’ve been getting bit every night and I’m not sure what kind of bug is biting me I need to figure it out by all the nasty bites I’ve been getting every night. I thought it was bed bugs but it turns out it wasn’t. And I’m the only one in the house getting bit.

Cerci of an Earwig, we presume.

Dear Solei,
Google Maps is not helping with your location “my room” so we are still clueless as to your location.  This is not a complete insect, and generally insect body parts can be difficult to identify using images, but we believe these are the distinctive Cerci of an Earwig.

My location is Pomona California. Are you sure its the distinctive earwig? I believe the pinchers of an earwig is on the butt side and in this picture of the big I sent you the pinchers are in front of it’s face and the pinchers are a lot longer. I couldn’t find anything on google either that is similar to it.
Sincerely Ms. Austin

Whatever was in the image you sent is not a complete insect.  We might be wrong, but it does not look like the head of anything.
