Are these four interacting galaxies?

Even if they’re not interacting they’re in a nice formation. Kind of looks like half a heart.

The galaxies are having diferent colours so they are farther away to be interacting.

Without diving in my first guess would be the top right one is a Milky Star, mainly because it is so nicely round and not fuzzy like the other three

Also colour can depend on many factors so difficult to tell without their redshifts, but in “general” the redder & smaller a galaxy the further away it is (rule of thumb) so just a guess they are not interacting.

And with strong interactions there might be material flying around, but these might be too faint to show that here
