I hope it’s fine if I post a picture of a manga I’m reading here:

Chapter 6, Chainsaw man 1

Chapter 6, Chainsaw man 1

The boy lost his pet (it died) and it became his heart.

I suspect it’s だの (and~) grammar but I know that なんだ is a different thing by itself. What is going on here?

Whether it remains there or not, that's little comfort!
