That I think it is an inductor. But w/o seeing a side view difficult to be certain.

We cannot read any number on the component. Do YOU see one?

If you can't find a number on that part, can you make out the number printed on the 5 pin IC next to it?

So it is an inductor. If you have an ohmmeter you should read, and this is a guess,
somewhere between 10 and 1K ohms, but you would have to unsolder it to make
sure if it was open some other part of the circuit was what you were reading.

Guess here is circuit is a buck or boost regulator, and that is the key component
in it.

Maybe I'm just seeing things but it looks a little like a button switch to me. Could the "coil" just be a spring, part of a pushbutton?
