Possible black hole?

Can somebody please help me identify this object? It looks to me like a black hole and there is another one to the left of it in close proximity. Thank you for your feedback.

Hi, and welcome!

This is a fairly common artifact in the WISE images called a ghost. It’s effectively an internal reflection in the optical path of the telescope. They happen around bright stars (hence also a ghost the other side of the nearby star).
