What Type of Male is this?

Looking to figure out the tail and a general color this would be considered.
Was walking through walmart today, and he was the last one on the shelf. still a baby more or less, but the guy said he'd been there for a week in that cup! ugh! well i rescued him. now looking for some info about him.

Cup he came in says: Male: Crowntail. Has no type of color or anything. not even sure tail is correct. please help me :) much appreciated

Generally walmart only sells crowntail or veiltail males, however I have found an occasional HMPK among them females.

Awesome. Thanks for your help. Rarely trust walmart when it comes to things like this. So I like to double check :) I appreciate your help.

OOH, he looks like a twin to my yellow CT who also came from walmart.
He had a case of the white fuzzies but fought it off with meds.

Actually, he's a double ray crowntail- crowntails tend to have one point per ray- yours has a V split per, which makes it a double. So a DR-CT is what you would call it for short.
I have a double-double ray (DDR CT) and they are interesting, even for a non CT fan like me lol.
