Turn the paper so that the fold is vertical and fold the sides towards it. Right.

And also center the left side of the paper.

And then point its corner down and align the side in the center. Hold it down.

Do the same with the left pocket.

In the upper part we have two layers of sharp corners. Pull the corner of the top layer and lower down, creating a diamond shape.

Fold the rhombus in half, bending the right corner to the left.

From two sides we can see branches that will be the fins of the seahorse. Bend the fin up and slightly obliquely.

Turn over to the other side and bend the fin in the same way.
