I would say he's split pied due to the yellowing of his crest. As for the mottling on his back I'm thinking Dominant Silver probably Single Factor. Are his nails and beak black?

All his nails are black, but he has yellow feathers on his wingbar.

He has white marks next his cheeks too. Could he split to whiteface too?

Normal grey with no obvious sign of a split. He doesn't have a pied tickmark, and the so-called whiteface split signs are not reliable. The white marks on the wings are so faint that I hesitate to call them ghost pearls, and in any case there's more than one thing that can cause ghost pearls.

A pied tickmark is the ONLY split sign that is reliable. Here's some info on the problems with other signs: http://www.littlefeatheredbuddies.co...ielsplits.html

Looking at theses I'd say you were right about Pearl.. As for split Whiteface it's a possibility.

My uncle said to me that my cockatiel's father splits to whiteface.

So does my bird have 50% chance to splits it, right?.

Here's a photo of my cockatiel between his parents:

If your bird's father is known to be split whiteface, then yes, there's a 50% probability that your bird is also split.

Do you know whether the parents have had any whiteface babies? If mom is also split to whiteface, the odds of your bird being split go up to 67%.

Here's how the math works on that. When both parents are split whiteface, here are the statistical expectations:
25% get the WF gene from both parents
25% get it from dad but not mom
25% get it from mom but not from dad
25% don't get it from anyone

So two out of three non-whiteface chicks will be split to WF. That's 67%.

The mother appears to be a lutino so it's safe to say he's a normal grey split lutino. possibly split whiteface but only breeding can confirm that. no signs of being a pearl on both the father or the son.
