Little branded has a pair of spots that's smaller than others after the topmost white spot. Ant the size is much smaller.
For now, just keep it as Pelopidas sp.

Then it can be little branded swift, but the spots are larger than the ones on LBS

Yes, it might be. Small Branded Swift does have 5 spots in some cases. Only the size of the spots is my reason to be doubtful.

I think this is a Small Branded Swift

I'm not exactly sure. There are 5 spots on the forewing discal row. I think Large branded only has 4.
