Please can anyone identify this Juvenile

Can anyone identify this Juvenile. LFS here where I stay provide very little information and they keep all african cichlids juveniles grouped together. So sometimes difficult to know what i get.

Looking at the base marking, the mouth shape, and the body shape it doesn't look like a commonly seen fish. Probably a Malawi "Hap" hybrid.

The Juvi cichlid is growing up fast and have developed color. It looks to me to be protomelas spilonotus mara rocks. See newer picture attached.
