Okay. It may be same or similar species. This is very common sighting here as well :) I never observed the abdomen it must be too tiny to see in dorsal view.
I will tag the spotting at family level as you suggested. Thank you! :)

It's probably in the genus Clogmia. https://www.jungledragon.com/specie/3930...
I also find these moths on my bathroom walls all the time.
