Any idea what type of pcb header is on the board for the battery? I have a motherboard with a broken header but I cant source a replacement

Followed the instructions here to open up and check the cabling for the WiFi ( PS Vita no longer connects to WiFi), however I did NOT find any cables except flat ribbon cables. PS Vita model PCH-1003.
