The plug is called 'ST'
That stands for 'straight tip'
This type is old and not used that often now.

Dang okay. These are plugged into some older fiber boxes and then from the box it goes to ethernet... but I wanted to plug directly into the 2 switches that I have via mini-gbic. is there a converter that goes from ST to mini gbic? Or would it be wise at this point to run new fiber?

Yes
The sfp plug is the little rectangle with two little square plugs in it.
Normally to convert to ST you use a lead with two STs on one end and a SFP on the other.  About $20 usd from memory
