Default What Color is this Little Man?

I need a little color help... please!
This is a 6-7 week old male. He has a lot of white quills!

He looks a little like a 'Charcoal White'. I'm excited to hear what the experts have to say because I'm really not sure....

You have to wait until after the last quilling, at about 9 weeks to determine color

I realize he's young - that's why I made sure to specify age. I am just trying to price this little guy - having an idea of what he MIGHT be will help with that!

Honestly, as Artemis said, there is no way to determine or even guess. He will probably change to a different color when his adult quills come in. My baby was listed as a cinnamon, but ended up brown when his adult quills came in. To my knowledge, most breeders don't price by color because there's no way to guarantee what their adult color will be.

Apart from Albino or Pinto patching, right?

I'm honestly not sure. I thought pinto patches could change during quilling, too, but I'm no breeder or color expert
That's a probably a question for Nikki, or another member more experienced with colors.
