It kinda looks like a blue java pup to me. I have several coming up and they all have that shiny/plastic looking green color to them as yours does. Good luck!

Your plant is far too young to ID with any accuracy as far as it being real 'Blue Java' vs. 'Namwah', which are often sold as 'Blue Java'. You'll have to wait for fruit for a 100% confirmation.
Growing bananas in Colorado, Hawaii and Washington since 2004.
