Does it stick to your shirt? If so, it’s bristly ox tail and safe to feed. It’s a dandelion relative.

That’s why they call it bristly ox tongue! It will stick to about anything. Even the flowers are sticky.

I tried looking it up and the leaves do not really look similar
They will; that’s a young plant and the leaf shapes will change as newer leaves come in. They will get bumpier. Look close at those little hairs sticking out.

Of course you shouldn’t feed anything you’re not comfortable with; you can wait for it to get bigger to confirm.
