My guess is Dark Eyed Clear, because DF spangles are pretty rare in pet type budgies, and don't usually show up in pet stores. One clue to look for would be the other budgies he is with.

If there seems to be a lot of other single factor spangle budgies, then it would be a good guess that they could have a DF.

If the other budgies seem to be a lot of pieds, especially recessive pieds, then Dark Eyed Clear is more likely.

But you really won't know until it molts and then does or does not get iris rings. (Although, again, the DF spangle could be a recessive pied or a DEC itself. )

Green suffusion is pretty common. If you've ever seen it on a yellowface, it can be really beautiful.
Well that sure complicates things doesn't it! LOL good to get an expert opinion I like learning about mutations and genetics
