    Those stubby antennae suggest one of the carpet beetles, same family as Bulldog's suggestion.

    Any event, totally harmless, considered pest in numbers. Larvae can be like cloths moths feeding on old fibers.

    I'd say it's in the family Dermestidae, maybe Dermestes maculatus, the hide beetle.
