From the Super Mario Wiki
A Pointey extending and shrinking in Yoshi's Island DS

A Pointey[1] is a horsetail-like creature that appears in Yoshi's Island DS. They do not harm the player, though they serve as obstacles as they extend from the ground to block the player's way and bounce them away if they touch one. They can be extremely tall or very short, and they can be defeated by a single jump, an egg, or Baby Donkey Kong's DK Dash Attack.
