Dragons were designed to have white/silver colored bodies with what ever colored tails which gives them their color names. They are different from regular color because their scales look thicker due to the extra metallic effect. However irids cannot display white/silver bodies. Their color tend to be the same body and fins.

Dragon fanatics do not recognize irids as dragons. They prefer to call them mere metallics. I call them dragon regardless because dragon and metallic genetics work differently.

Your picture is too dark for me to see if he is dragon or not. . . irid dragons are harder to distinguish (specially in pictures) because they look almost the same as regular color - specially royal blue.

Fin: He looks to be HM without any rose-ing. A side view flaring picture would help
