This whitish/grey specimen is most likely a species of the genus Jorunna, I label it for now Jorunna sp. 09, to distinguish it from other undescribed species of the genus Jorunna  Bergh, 1876.
Jorunna sp. 09 has a distinctive enlarged and pointed 'snout' and an elevated gill pocket, it might be a very tiny Jorunna rubescens (Bergh, 1876),
I have no idea how juveniles of Jorunna rubescens do look like! I keep it for now as Jorunna sp. 09  Genus: Bergh, 1876.
I found on 8 July 2020 at facebook a picture of a 25 mm juvenile Jorunna rubescens from Bali, Indonesia, it looks different...
