Brief Answer:

No its not.

Detailed Answer:

Hello,

Have seen attached photos.
This appears like fluffy ragged stool which is slightly moister.

I mean it ok but it's not ribbon-like.
ribbon like stools or stringy stool contains lots of mucous and is suggestive of some infection in the gut.

You poop is just a bit moist add up Isabghul husk 2 tsf in XXXXXXX warm.

Water before going to bed every day and stools would be consistent and normal in appearance.

Though its ok to have such stools also.

Hope I have answered your query.

Take care

Regards,
