Info: I got this mysterious felid skull. I am 99% sure it is not a domestic cat. But what is it?

I came across this skull, Oncilla Leopardus tigrinus:

On this site:

It did remind me a little bit of your skull. So I thought it could be a clue :)
The writer of the blog, Paolo Viscardi, seems to be specialized in identifying weird skulls. Maybe a mail with pictures of this skull is a plausibility?

It looks like a more exotic breed of domesticated cat! Maybe a British shorthair or exotic, something with a flat snout

I have a bobcat skull and the teeth dont bend like that in it. Theyre rather straight.

I disagree. :) Every picture of a bobcat skull I can find at the shown angles have teeth that are near identical. Alternatively, I'm not seeing the "bend" that you are. Would you care to point out the specific angle you're referring to?

Haha dude looking at it on the computer I see what I mistook as super long bendy teeth in the full frontal facing pic is just a trick of light. It does kind of look like a bobcat... mine isn't fully intact though like this one, got hurt during two moves I went through, so it's actually hard to fully compare.

That's perfectly understandable, no worries! :) Sorry about the dings to your skull, though.

My initial guess would be either bobcat or lynx. The size seems accurate to me, and the... I think the coronoid process (spiky bit that looks like it's coming through the eye socket on the front view) comes up in the right place for a bobcat, so... yeah, bobcat is my guess. :)
