Poured concrete or blocks (identification)

Hi DIY community,

I bought a house which was advertized as poured concrete foundation. However, I had to dig and noticed that there are vertical lines on it, which makes me question if it could be blocks. I can't see any vertical lines, only long vertical one. My father thinks it is concrete but make from homemade formwork. What do you think?

Those horizontal lines are no doubt from the concrete forms that were used in that location.

Here is a piece that broke while drilling. You can see the line but they only seem to be on the surface.

Like XSleeper said, definitely poured concrete.
