Try looking at the pages in this (http://seahorse.fisheries.ubc.ca/IDguide.html) ID guide.
Identifying seahorses is not strait forward because there is a lot of variability within species.
How long have you had this horse and how big is it? It looks like a male and has a fairly slender body. The crest is also erect. Could be Reidi. The snout looks short for a reidi.

Thanks for the info guys I had him for about 3 weeks now but he stop eating :(

How long ago did he stop and what did he eat before he stopped?
Go to seahorse.org or syngnathid.org and check out the disease section of either sites library. If your horse is sick, you need to identify the disease quickly and treat appropriately. Horses go downhill fast when they get sick.

I agree-if he stopped eating, thats BAD
what have you been feeding him?

About 2 days ago he stop eating I was feeding him brine and Mysid Shrimp.

Live or frozen? Is this a solitary seahorse? How active is it compared to when it was feeding? are there any new marks or patches on the skin anywhere? White tail tip?
I would not panic or anything, just watch your horse closely and make note of any behavior changes.
Oh, and the most obvious question is: How do you know your horse is not feeding? do you remove all uneaten food from the tank?
From the first pic, if it was taken in the last 2 days, your horse looks quite healthy.

Frozen foods and no. no new spots or anything I was looking for any signs of that but nothing at all.

OK, cool. I just noticed you have two clowns in with him. Are they bothering him at all? Is it possible they are eating his food before he gets a chance?
Lots of folks don't like clowns with horses, but some do this. Seahorses are very slow eaters.
Your horse has nice colours by the way.

I moved the clowns out of the tank I'll let you guys know if he's eating or not.
