I would say it is a Clearflight pied Skyblue. It is a lovely bird!

I agree. I think the way to look at it is the clear flight feathers which is indicative that you have a clearflighted pied. While the color mutation is sky blue.

You can refer to the undermentioned links to read about your budgie mutation.

https://cutelittlebirdiesaviary.weebl...learflightpied

Just remove the spacings when you copy and paste into a separate tab on your browser.

Hope it helps. There are different budgie mutations there if you like to know about the others.

Thanks y'all! Honestly though, the pictures don't do him justice! The feathers on his breast are kind of iridescent, and when his wings are grown out they are just gorgeous.
Also, the spot on the back of his head was in the shape of a heart when I first got him, I wish I had gotten a picture of it before it changed!

I agree that he is a sky blue Is it just the lighting or does he have some faint pied markings under his right wing? If so he is probably a sf dominant pied rather than clearflight

Are pied markings the white spots he has in the blue area? If so then yes, he has a few of those, but they seem small and spread apart.
Thanks for all the help!

Wow! I can't even see the markings! Tobilou, Lindsey is remarkable!
But why is it a SF and not DF? Can someone explain that, please?
