Most likely belong to a smaller feline species.

A real leopard tooth looks like that, proportionally longer.

Yep, that looks better. There is around 700 leopards in sri lanka. I think they are a bit smaller than others.
I have read this article.. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sri_Lankan_leopard
I have read that sri lankan leopards are smaller than african leopards.

If its not a leopards tooth, what it can be? @GrizzlyClaws 

thanks a lot you all..

Some say Sri Lanken Leopards are larger than most due to their lack of Competition from larger Carnivores but I have spoken to someone who has seen both and he said that the African are larger and I have only seen one male Indian and African Leopard but the Male African Leopard I saw was huge, the indian was a good size but he didn't have the head size or body girth of the African I saw in the serengeti.

The scale of the tooth is needed to determine whether it is a leopard or some other smaller feline species.

Do you have the size of the tooth?

Anything less than 6 cm shall be included as the leopard.

Sorry, I made a typo, I meant that the leopard can be excluded if it is less than 6 cm.

Maybe it could be a lower canine tooth of a leopard.
