Does anyone know what this is or if it’s harmful? I found it on my snail a few minutes ago

Was going to say asterina starfish, but it has way too many legs.

It seems like that dark gray part is a mouth as it keeps opening and closing

Strange...that part looks like a bivalve of some sort.

The closest thing I could find would be a baby barnacle. So I think that’s what it was

Barnacle.  They won't hurt anything and are neat to have.

I took it out already because I didn’t know what it was. Now that I know if I see another one pop up I’ll keep him for a bit

Try not to panic when you find new things.  The vast majority of hitchikers are neutral or beneficial.  

 

Also, if you post in the ID Forum, you might attract more responses from people who like IDing things faster.
