Default Dominant Pied Sky Blue, right?

I just traded my breeding pair of zebra finches for a parakeet yesterday and have been looking in to what kind of parakeet he is. From looking online I have concluded that he must be a Dominant Pied Sky Blue. Does he appear to be? His wings are completely white, white patch on back of head, chest is sky blue with a white stripe across, this is what earned him the name Cumulus, as in the fair weather cloud seen in the sky (exactly what his chest looks like) his wings and tail are completely clear, only striping on his head and back of neck and back. I'm posting some pics to help decide. As far as I can tell there doesn't seem to be other mutations though of course I could be wrong.

He is turning out to be a good bird. The person I got him from had kids that took him out, he did try to bite the first day and occasionally has today, but I think he was scared moving to a new home, I use a perch to get him out of the cage and then he will step up on my hand after only working with him since yesterday, he bit hard at first but I took the bites and he learned that it doesnt do any good. He will sit on my shoulder and let me pet him and in the cage likes to sing a lot, think he will be a talker eventually. I'm planning on getting him very tame and loving, working with him every day. Anyway, I'm just curious if he is the mutation I think he is, I just think he's so gorgeous! I don't know that I'll ever try to breed him, for now just want him to bond to me and my daughter, but I like to know colors anyway.

The only other thoughts I have is maybe some greywing or clearwing? His striping is more greyish than the typical black, but his blue is also very bright. Thanks ahead of time

based on what im seeing, i agree about the dominant pied and the clearwing, but i think the light coloring and pattern on the back of the head there could be opaline.

Ok, here are a couple more pics, better ones of the neck and back, and tops of the wings, maybe they'll help, I'm wondering though is it actually spangle and not opaline since there isnt any blue through the stripes? I do see now the striped feathers are different than normal. Thanks

Definitely Dominant Pied.

But without clear pictures of the back and wing feathers, I cannot say anything about Opaline.

I'm almost positive he would be Spangle rather than Opaline, he doesn't have any blue coming through to interrupt the striping, but does have the reverse coloration, the pics I posted of his back aren't clear enough for you?
