Default Help with identifying mutation?!

Hi, just wanted some help identifying what mutations my budgie has. I'm a newbie at this, I think she probably is yellow face type II. But also wanted to know the difference with the mottled as well. she is approx 3 months now. She just had a first molt and now has green patches appear, how do I know if she is a mottled budgie or just yellow face type II?
First picture is approx one month old. Second picture is approx 3 months old, just had a first molt.

She's not mottled, it's normal for yellowface type II budgies to have the yellow spread into the feathers like that. Single factor golden face budgies also have that happen.
I think she is a yellowface type II cobalt violet opaline budgie. Stunningly beautiful, too!
