Question Melanoid or Wildtype Juvenile?

Hey,
I have 2 photos of my brand new juvenile axie. He came from parents that were one Leucistic and one Wildtype. The breeder said that there is not shiny ring around his eyes which indicates a Wildtype. I'm just curious because his colour is fairly light, although she said he will get darker.. Can anyone help/ give opinion?

Its a little harder to tell when theyre that little. However leucistic are usually a lot paler and have a pink tinge to them even that small.

My guess would be most likely a wiltype but a possible melanoid.

When I first got my Stitch he was see through with a gold speckled head, I was convinced he was a wild type but the older he got, he lost all his sparkle. He is now a beautiful melaniod (see DP) :)

Wow, he is so beautiful! I hope my guy is a melanoid, he's already getting darker and he doesn't have as many shimmery speckles as he used to. Thanks for the opinion! :)
