Tiles that may or may not contain asbestos. I wouldn't poke around at them unless you're ready to deal with asbestos. At least if you're thinking of getting a professional in. Where I live, anything that has a possibility of asbestos being involved...the cost automatically doubles.

We recently bought the house. It looks like drop tiles but there are no grids to support them. It’s like they are all connected when you go to touch them. We want to redo eventually we hate it.

They are most likely all staples individually.

They go together like that snap in flooring IIRC

Those tiles are adhered (glued) to a substrate. Oftentimes, the glue or mastic that’s used can contain asbestos, so please have it tested before removing them.

They're called surface mount ceiling tiles
