Apartment Shower Head Stuck?

I am trying to replace my apartment's shower head, but I cannot budge the old one. I noticed that the bottom end of a screw or bolt is sticking out, is this possibly locking it in place? There is no way to access that piece that I can see to remove it. Our second bathroom shower head has the same piece, but it is on the side instead of the bottom. See the attached picture to view it. Is this possible at all to remove?

Thank you for any help or advice

You shouldn't be if you don't own the apartment. Call the landlord if you rent. The liability you expose yourself to isn't worth it.

Yes, call your landlord. Ask them if they would install it if you purchase a new shower head. They will come in and use an Allen wrench to loosen the set screw holding the existing shower head in place and unscrew it. Then they will screw on your new shower head.

If you break something off that could be an expensive plumbers visit that the landlord will charge you for. Maybe the wall will need to be opened so then there is the the tile person also to be payed.
