Hi Audit1233 Welcome!

Yes indeed, that looks like Double Common Snowdrop (Galanthus nivalis 'Flore Pleno')

Welcome to the forums.
There are 1000's of named snowdrops.
Many of which are almost identical to others.....even expert Galanthophiles struggle to see the differences.
Your snowdrop is clearly different from the normal Galanthus nivalis flore pleno.
There is one called Galanthus nivalis pleniflorus "Walrus"that looks similar to your pic..so named for the 3 sticking out petals that look like tusks..but equally it could be a very different one.
