Question Dominant or Recessive Pied?

Hey, y'all! Can anyone tell me if my budgie Widget is a dominant pied or a recessive pied? I was recently told that "she" is a "he", which confused the heck out of me, and now I'm curious as to the mutation, because I'm told that affects cere color. Here is a pic:

Thanks! That means his flight feathers will be yellow for this specific bird, right? I'll find out after the first molt: whoever clipped his wings at the store did a real hack job.

Now hold on while I regain control of my brain ... finding out widget is a boy just completely threw me!

FYI - rule of thumb - dominant pieds have a belly band (of color) and the thumb print on the back of the head.
