Default color type and markings on Cas

Castiel is 10 weeks old and just finishing up his quilling. It looks to me that he is a chocolate type pinto with an algerian mask or markings(I think)? Though he has a handful of solid white quills intermixed with his banded ones. Does that make him also a snowflake? Can that happen? They are fairly sparse but definatly noticable, since the white ones are a bit longer then the choco ones. I've tried to decode all the color variations and markings from the internet, but id there something more defining that I should look for on him? I thought I would ask the oppinions of more experienced owners. thanks in advance!

Looks like a chocolate pinto. Not a snowflake, but yes, that's possible - snowflake and pinto are caused by different genes, so a hedgehog can be both at the same time. They need to have 30% solid white quills to be considered snowflake (not counting the quills that are white from pinto spots), so your boy doesn't have enough.

Thank you! I wasn't sure if he would qualify, since he maybe has 15%-20% white quills... Excluding the pinto spots of course ^_^
