Do you know what these are??

Hello, I found a few of these in my home. One was crawling up the wall and the others were on the edge of the carpet. Are these carpet beetles?

Looks like a varied carpet beetle.

Squish it. Does it smell pretty weird or bad? If so then it could be a stink bug, possibly the brown marmorated stink bug which are very common around my house right now.

Varied carpet beetle. Sometimes they can enter from exterior but if you find more than one in the approximate area, then it's time to look at taxidermy mounts, old clothing in storage that has natural fiber/material such as hats with feathers, fur stoles, old leather, etc.
