Help me identify my snail please!

These are the best photos I could get. He has one whorl coming out of the side that has a bluish-white dot at the very center of that whorl(new whorl forming?) He's a dark brown color and about 1/2" in size. I have had him for a month and he has not grown nor have I seen eggs/babies. Any help would be GREATLY appreciated!







Thank you so much,
Chris
