Irregular; perhaps merger?

    This galaxy seems pretty irregular. I classified it as "no spiral pattern" but maybe it has one, only disturbed. There are some foreground starts but at 11 o'clock there's something that might be a small companion/merging galaxy.

    It is hard to say with this one. Possibly bar, or possibly edge-on. Certainly disturbed, and arcs of stars that might be disturbed arms, or tidal trails, or both.
