Default Is this grey or something else?

Hi all I will more pics but this boy I thought might be dominant silver but I don't think so as the feathers on his back are lighter on the edge. He has black eyes and feet, quite silvery and light grey in colour, scalloping on his back, thin behind crest, mottled under tail, yellow wash to belly & around vent and faintly on white bars. Feather veins are darker than the feather but not the edges. His yellow mask is quite undefined around the edges.
Is he anything other than grey (split pearl, lutino?) Or possibly emerald?
There was another where I bought him who was dark grey but had a yellow wash all over it was quite obvious on the white on his wings.

Is hard to capture the yellow hue with the camera.

I don't know enough about dominant silver to say yes or no. There's no way to tell if he's split to cinnamon or lutino, as there's no visual indicators of this. He may be split to wf due to the white around his cheek patch.

He looks like a cinnamon. Possibly a split wf with the white around the check patches.

To me I would say a cinnamon with UV exposure causing the mottled look. cinnamons suffer from photo sensitivity, lighter feathers will be the severely sun bleached feathers and darker ones where they have molted and been replaced. the tail and vent feathers may still be juvenile feathers that have yet to go solid yet

Interesting, I have Cinnamons and he isn't at all brown or warm in colour but I did think it might have been due to UV. I'll be quite happy if he is cinnamon. I also thought maybe split to WF with that white shadow.
The yellow worried me a little as I read it can happen in liver disease but he his a very happy & lively young man. It is summertime where we are (NZ) and too cold to breed in winter so my guess is he is at least a year old.
May have to just wait until I breed him and see what comes out in the nest!

Trying hard to show the yellow on the white areas on his wings but the light hides it in the shot. Is buttercup yellow like their face just in some areas. Never seen it on a grey before. Perhaps is just normal.

No idea on the mutation but the colour sure is beautiful!
