I found this bug roaming in our bed. I dont know what this is. Please help me ID this

I have small kids at home and I dont know if this was a one off or I should take this more seriously.

Yes. I did check the entire room and could not locate any other such bugs.

I'm not an expert, but it could be the larvae of some type of carpet beetle.

How big is it?

I found this query by a fellow including a pic that looks something like yours. The reply said that this is a carpet beetle larva.
