Default Sexing and mutation

Bird's about 9 weeks old. My guess has been male, but I'm uncertain.

Also, any other neat tidbits about his colour/mutation would be interesting.

Can't really see it in any of these pictures but he's got a single blue patch right on his stomach.

All photos taken WITHOUT flash, using natural daylight.

From those pics I'm leaning more towards young budgie girl. I'm seeing some white above the cere and around the nostril area. I fail to see the translucent, see through quality typically seen on the ceres of young budgie boys.

I think your budgie is olive green in colour and is a pied. I'm not sure on which type of pied. It can be dominant, even though I'm seeing traits of double factor dominant pied. And depending on whether your budgie develop the irises on the eyes or not, there is the possibility of her being a combination pied (a mix of dominant and recessive pied).

You have a gorgeous budgie boy!
I'm thinking he's a boy because a girl either has a white or white with blue cere at a young age, boys can have a lighter color in the cere, but girls simply really do not have pink or purple in their cere at a young age, and yours has pink/purple, so he's a boy.

I agree with Aluz about the mutation, but I think I'm also going to go with boy

It's definitely a tricky cere! We'll have to see
