i have an idea but recently i found a product that is very similar to mine.  similar shape, similar design, similar function/use.  although similar, my product has a different function and a different design.  its useful, but i dont know if its new and non-obvious compared to the other similar product.  it's even put on the same way as the similar product, and i thought i was the first to have that idea.  the way it's used is similar to mine also, there are minor differences though.

I guessing that you want to know if your product is patentable over the similar product.  
 
Without knowing details of the existing product and other prior art, there is no way to know if you can get a commercially valuable patent for your invention.  I suggest that you privately consult with a patent agent or patent attorney.
