We report the magnetic imaging of ferromagnetic domains in the van der Waals single crystal MnSb2Te4 from two different sources using cryogenic magnetic force microscopy. The magnetic field dependence of the domains reveals very weak pinning of domain walls in MnSb2Te4, resulting in a negligibly small magnetic hysteresis loop. The temperature dependence of the domain contrast reveals a mean field like behavior, in good agreement with that of bulk magnetization measurements.
