What am I? (Colour question)

This is Milton! I was curious as to what colour he would be described as and what tail type he is classified as.
I can't manage to get him to flare though, I think he is a shy betta :)

I believe I have heard this color termed as "Milky," though he might be albino. As for the tail type, it's hard to tell without flaring, but he looks like a Rosetail.

I don't think he's an albino, his eyes are not red, however in some light angles his body looks slightly see through that I can see the veins leading to his tail, it almost gives off a super soft pink kind of colour, I was thinking rose tail as well but it's so difficult with some!

Does he actually have that pinky tint like in the second pic?
If you does, I would call him an opaque pastel.

And with all the ruffling on the caudal fin, I would say it's likely he's a rosetail.

Here's another photo of his attempted flare, he did it! Hehe he also build a bubble nest after today's water change so he must be feeling happier!

Edit: yeah he has that pinkish tone but its only visible in some lights, others he looks totally pure white :) do you consider him a dragon scale?

I'm no expert, but I don't think he's a dragonscale, because he doesn't have a base color underneath the white.

man betta colors and tail types are really confusing I would have just called him a white halfmoon but of course I'm no expert and I would be yellled at so... Just go with everybody else's answers.

I didnt know there were so many different ways to call a fish "white" haha!

in regards to being a rose tail will his fins get bigger and more fuller as he ages? Hes having no issues swimming and can get around pretty quick because i baffled the filter on the tank but im worried if they get bigger his swimming will be affected
