Default Odin: Mutation and Cere

Firstly, I'd like to know his mutation. I've gotten a few different ones from different people. His little patches look like he might have violet in him? I hope so! Hehe. Oh, and just so no one asks, he is green, but he has some light blue on his rump. Oh, and the white feather that is only on one wing, is just a random feather that i think is going to fall out soon ...
Well, here is a picture without flash:








And with ... I zoomed in on his face so you could see the patch better.



And here is his cere ... is it supposed to be that flaky? I think he may be molting ...

Usually any kind of flakyness or crust means it's starting of mites,
but I am no expert so I will let them answer this for you,

but he's adorable!
He is exactly like my little girl Lillian - with bluish green on her bum

to me , he looks to be a
Yf2 Cobalt Dominant pied

the yellow leaking into his blue makes him look to be green , and I believe I see a yellow band on his bellie , making him a dominant pied

It does not look like he has mites O_o
I agree with Stacey, from what I have been reading, looks like his yellow is blending with his blue with blue residuals on his vent/tail area, so yes a YF2 dominant skyblue (shows up as skyblue on my monitor O_o)

The blue on his rump is sky blue, but his cheek patches kind of look purple tinged. He is literally every color Well, he doesn't have grey or brown. But, he was white feathers under his colorful ones (on his wings, and I'm not talking about his down feathers, they are huge and not fuzzy ) And his markings are black and scalloped, which makes my think that he was Opaline? I'm so bad at this! haha. He just looks like everything to me

The closeup of his rump also shows that the edges of his marked feathers are white, so I don't think he is opaline, but am new to this. He is super cool though! How old is he?

I don't think he's an opaline based on his wing markings. He is a yellow face type II dominant skyblue

Lift his wing and see if its green or blue under there. Green = green bird, blue = YF2. If i recall rightly...
