    Yup, rivet. You will need to drill through it or chisel off either the peened over top or bottom. Commented Sep 24, 2023 at 16:49

It's a rivet.

Not a bolt at all.

You either drill it out if you can stop it spinning (typically from the other side if accessible,) or grind it off if you can't stop it spinning. If you don't own a grinder you can also remove it with a cold chisel and a hammer by cutting off the raised rim from several directions.
