    Can you post a better picture? Maybe take a screenshot instead of a picture of your screen. This looks more like a quilt than sheet music.

    Could you try to show an image with higher quality, but also showing at least one whole measure. A title and composer name or other reference could be helpful as well. Mar 1 at 16:19

    If you zoom out, it looks just like a triplet 8th, triplet 8th rest, and another triplet 8th. That might be enough info for OP to find the answer

    @NadiaB providing a big and magnified image taken from a screen is not really helpful. On the contrary, you'll get the exact opposite. For future reference, learn how to properly get screen captures on your device/computer, or provide a smaller photo - in any case, ensure that what's displayed is actually visible and recognizable.

Not the clearest of pictures! But I think it's this? Here's a whole 4-beat bar's worth of them:

enter image description here

Triplet 8ths, with the middle one replaced by a rest.

'One-and-a, Two-and-a, Three-and-a, Four-and-a' with the 'ands' missing.

    This is it. The blob in between must be the blob part of the quaver rest, which surely must be apparent in a proper size picture.. +1.

This seems pretty much like a triplet of eighths notes, where the middle one is a rest and the outer notes share the beam.

In total the length is equal to that of a quarter note.
