That looks like a Torx TR6, TR8 or TR10 screw. There are two versions of Torx these with a pin in the middle is the security version (TR)

By chance is this a five lobe screw? Your image is not very clear, then that would be a 5-Point Tamper Resistant Star Bit

So since that’s a five ‘star’ what’s the exact bit name I would need?
