These are fossil burrows... Looks like Thalassinoides or something similar. They are made by fishes, sea anemones, and crustaceans and can occur in different shapes... elongated, rounded, ending in t-sections, straight, spiral-shaped. A scalebar would be helpful for further classification.

One version of classical Thalassinoides

Take a look at the Wikipedia page about it
