Default What is his coloring called?

So, Izzy is new to my family and we're still learning about each other. He is a rescued hog and clearly was having a hard time in his previous home. He's got some tattered ears that I have yet to be diagnosed with a vet. (Btw how urgent do you think I would need to go? I got some bag balm to put on them for now) Also he's got some pink skin by his ears, hopefully just dry skin. Anyway, it's killing me that I don't know the name of his coloring and he just doesn't seem to match up with the descriptions or picture examples. Would anyone be able to help me out?
He has whitish quills around his bottom half with a circular area of brown with white tips near the front.

Either a gray or chocolate pinto. Hard to tell which without more clear photos, especially of the face.

Tattered ears aren't a vet issue, it's built up gunk - dirt, dry skin, etc. Some Vaseline on them daily will clear it up.

Sorry the images are blurry, the page won't let me upload the larger images. Here's one of his face. But thank you! Even that much is helpful. I can look up some more info on those colors. It's just fun to know!
