We examine the impact of two alternative dark matter models that possess distinct non-zero equations of state, one constant and the other time-dependent, on the nonlinear regime using the spherical collapse approach. Specifically, we compare these models to standard cold dark matter (CDM) by analyzing their influence on the linear density threshold for nonrelativistic component collapse and virial overdensity. Additionally, we explore the number count of collapsed objects, or dark matter halos, which is analogous to the number count of galaxy clusters. Finally, in light of recent discoveries by the James Webb Space Telescope (JWST), which indicate the potential for more efficient early galaxy formation at higher redshifts, we have been investigating how alternative dark matter assumptions can enhance structure formation efficiency during the early times.
