I am new to this forum but the lack of orange cheek patches makes me think it's a whiteface mixed with something else.
I have a whiteface pearl and it has more grey/charcoal feathers than yours.
The fact that the face is mostly a "bright white" instead of an off white makes me think it may be male not female.

It looks like it might be whiteface cinnamon, where the cinnamon coloring has been faded by being in the sun.

I agree with tielfan. It very well could be a boy but does it have barring on it's tail feathers?

Holy crap, the sun does that? I nearly bought a whiteface cinnamon pearl girl that looked very much like the main bird in the picture tielfan posted (except white obviously) and I absolutely fell in love.

The sun can fade cinnamon but doesn't have such a dramatic effect on normal grey coloring. Cinnamon has abnormal melanin that isn't as sun-resistant as normal.

Thank you everyone for your replies,

It has tail barrings so probably is a female..

I have cinnamon hair and the sun fades it too.
