Just out of curiosity, does Pi have any notable, visual mutations?

He is about a year old and I've noticed the following in his colours:
1. Thin white crest around his cheeks
2. Pink feet
3. Pink beak with a black tip (freaking adorable!)
4. Nearly dappled grey/yellow feathers behind his crest (also freaking adorable)
5. A yellow hue on the edges of his darker tail and flight feathers (?)

He's currently molting do the grappling behind his crest is becoming more noticeable.
Let me know what you guys think 😁

He does not appear to be visual in any mutations. He could be split to a few things, but signs of being split are just signs and should be taken with a grain of salt. Possible pearl, whiteface, and pied splits. He looks young and probably hasn't reached full adulthood. The yellow hue on his tail feathers and flights should fade and disappear as he gets the full male yellow mask on his face. If the yellow hue on his tail feathers does not disappear it is possible he may be a male pearl a mutation that does not present in males in the same way it does females.
