Expert Answer:

Every magnet has a different type of a  magnetic field.For eg. the magnetic field of a bar magnet is different than a horse shoe magnet or an electro magnet.The current carrying wire is not a magnet but just displays magnetic properties.The magnetic field  in a current carrying wire follows right hand thumb rule.
