As you can see the spider has a bigger abdomen than it's head and it's a small one.I found it in a corner of my house.Does anyone know it's species?

Cobweb Spider (Theridiidae) of some-sort. Can’t make out the details.

I only see an additional ventral shot, best guess would be a Steatoda sp. (False Widow).

Steatoda triangulosa is a possibility but S. borealis is well out of range. S. bipunctata has a much broader range is similar to S. borealis. I would need to see a clear dorsal image to attempt to identify it further.

That’s still a ventral. It’s the dorsal that is more helpful.
