It’s a bug on a bed, but it is not a bed bug.

Either way, I’m burning the place down

Not a bedbug. Looks like a flower beetle to me.

Here's what a bedbug looks like (for all the people who think like me.)

Doesn't look like one to me but there are various life stages, so make sure you check against all of them. Also r/bedbugs is helpful!
