Scleroderma citrina, very young

I agree with the other comment. In addition, the white center (gleba) indicates extreme youth. Scleroderma citrina should start turning violet/purple/dark purple-black within a week.

I’d split these into two sighting as well…

you can use the same photo if you must, just indicate the mushroom to be named (L or R)in your photo caption. The ball-shaped one seems like a scleroderma to me…if you still have it, cut it in half and take another photo!
