Default Little Ellington's mutation?

Ellington's only 3+ weeks old but I'm wondering if someone can confirm his mutation. I'm expecting him to be a SF spangle as his parents are yellow DF spangle and normal grey. He's getting green on his tummy now, which would be from his dad (his siblings had green bodies). I'm also wondering about the baby bars - they're only on the very top of his head, not on the back of his neck. (Maybe this is normal but this is my first ever chick so I'm a bit clueless. )

I can't see the green colour that well, but your gorgeous Ellington seems to be a dark green greywing spangle.

That sounds very nice. I should get some better photos of his body colour later in the week.

He may be a grey green spangle instead of a dark green. I don't think he's a greywing though.
