Its not the same as the normal V. corymbosum. Its more compact with denser branching and leaves more glaucous, berries smaller and not so nice. Just wondering what species it might be

There are many named cultivars.
Not sure how you tell one from another.

Half-high blueberries are hybrids between Vaccinium corymbosum and low-bush Vaccinium angustifolium, making more compact plants.
...in the link below the RHS lists several named cultivars.Maybe this will help.

Thank you. I'm more interested in what species rather than cultivar. But I expect you're right and it is a cross between the high bush and the low bush. Do you know if the leaves of V. angustifolium are more of a kind of blue green colour
