Question Goldenface base colour?

I need some help identifying one of my budgie's mutation. I believe he is a single factor goldenface but i'm still learning about budgie genetics and colours so please correct me if i'm wrong

My question is, is he sky or cobalt? I'm having a hard time identifying his base colour. Here are some pics of him now, and one before his first moult.

The pictures aren't completely accurate, they make his colour seem a little lighter around the face and tail area, but no matter what kind of light there is, I can't seem to change that.

Which pictures are most accurate? The first three are definitely Skyblue, but the last is very much Cobalt!

I have no idea if the last one is accurate or not , it was over 6 years ago, but I do remember he was a medium blue colour, not sky like my other sky colored budgie. As for the other pictures, the shade of green is right but in real life he is all greenis turquoise and the little light blue bits don't show nearly as much. I'll try to get pictures in better light or with a different device if possible.
