Question Plakat or Halfmoon Plakat?

I know I asked about Dragoon's tail type before, and I do know that he's a Plakat, but I was wondering if anyone could help me figure out what type of Plakat? Is he just a Plakat, or is he a Halfmoon Plakat? I finally got some okay pictures of him, so I was just wondering!

Try to get a side view of him flaring, but he looks like a trad PK to me.

I'll try next time I feed him (seems to be the only time he flares at the moment :/).

Thank you to all that answered, just looking at Dragoon, he seems to be a traditional plakat (no "D" shape and definitely more rounded). Sorry I can't get better pictures (tried today and failed miserably since Dragoon isn't very photogenic -.-). Thanks again!

Based on the pics I would also say PK. He's gorgeous. :)
