Little bulb in headlight - Identify

Hey all,

I have a small bulb in both headlights that sits between the high and low beams. It is unlit on either side but I can't think what it might be for. It has a connected plug on the passenger's side but the harness on the driver's side doesn't seem to have a connection to it. Is this bulb supposed to be lit?

Some even call them "City Lights" I put a blue 194 led in mine, when i'm driving in my moms park or somewhere where bright headlights are "unacceptable" shining into windows like a d*** I turn off the lowbeams and they shine the way pretty well. Just be careful as this is technically Illegal on public roads lol
