I found this thing on my way home from work. I really don't know if it's a genuine arrowhead or if it's just a stone? What do you guys think?

I found this in sealand, Denmark.
The widest part is 2 cm, and the longest part is about 4 cm.

The two first pictures are taken from the front and the last picture is taken from the back

Not an arrowhead, but it looks very much like a flake that has been removed in the manufacture/knapping of a stone tool.

Welcome to TNET!
It looks quite similar to a micro blade. While the knapper was flaking off material from a core they would utilize the small flakes that were sharp as knives. These micro blades were used until they lost their function. The wide end may have also been utilized as a graver.
