Question What mutation am I?

Here is a photo. If it helps my sybling was light yellow with cinnamon wings and small patch of teal on their belly.

Is there a mutation name for the shot on the back of a birds head? because my budgie has one.

Do you have a picture from the back? I would need to see that to be certain of the mutation, but from the front it looks like a Yellow Face type 2 Sky Blue Clearflight Pied. When they have the Pied print on the head it means they are of a pied Mutation

Based on what i can see, it looks like a double factor YF2 sky blue opaline clearwing. I.e. A rainbow budgie.

It would really help to look at it from the back as well, to determine any striping or marking mutations. Its definately double factor YF2 sky blue. Gorgeous little thing

It could be a rainbow. The mutations we can see are type 2 yellow face and opaline if it is also clearwing then it is a rainbow. The spot on the back of it's head could mean that it is split for recessive pied or it could be that it is a clearflight pied (which is a different mutation from clearwing). Looking forward to seeing a picture of it's back
