According to many ahadith the answer would be yes.

There are multiple verses stating there is nothing like him as he is unique so creation can't be compared to him literally. That doesn't change the fact the Prophet (saw) told us Allah created Adam (as) in his image.

Here's some references.

عَنْ أَبِي هُرَيْرَةَ قَالَ قَالَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ إِذَا قَاتَلَ أَحَدُكُمْ أَخَاهُ فَلْيَجْتَنِبْ الْوَجْهَ فَإِنَّ اللَّهَ خَلَقَ آدَمَ عَلَى صُورَتِهِ

2612 صحيح مسلم كتاب البر والصلة والآداب باب النهي عن ضرب الوجه

The Messenger of Allah (saw) said, “If one of you fights his brother, let him avoid the face. Verily, Allah created Adam in His image.” (Muslim 2612)

The Prophet (saw) said: “Allah created Adam in His image, and he was sixty cubits tall. When he created him he said, ‘Go and greet that group of angels who are sitting and listen to how they greet you, for that will be your greeting and the greeting of your descendants.’ So he said, ‘Al-salaamu ‘alaykum (peace be upon you),’ and they said, ‘Al-salaamu ‘alayka wa rahmat-Allaah (Peace be upon you and the mercy of Allaah.’ So they added (the words) ‘wa rahmat-Allaah.’ Everyone who enters Paradise will be in the form of Adam, but mankind continued to grow shorter until now.” (Bukhari 6227; Muslim 2841)

The Messenger of Allah (saw) said: “Do not say ‘May Allah deform your face’ [a form of cursing in Arabic], for the son of Adam was created in the image of the Most Merciful.” (Sunnah 517)

The Messenger of Allah (saw) said: “When any one of you fights let him avoid the face, for Allah created Adam in the image of His Face.” (Sunnah 516)
