Yud without a Rosh (edited)
This is not the first time I've encountered this problem in a mezuza.
Again, I'll reiterate - it is not easy to distinguish between (1) a yud whose Rosh is slanted and also functions as a "kotz" אליבא דחתם סופר ודעימיה and between (2) and yud that has only a kotz and no Rosh. In this case I believe it's the latter.
(Btw we've been here before www.stamforum.com/2014/02/yud.html though I think this case is worse)
