Is my beardie a hypo or any special kind or is he just normal?

Tofu is my beardie but I have three leopard geckos, Raptor, Panda and Pumpkin
I have never seen my beardie’s parents but he is a male and I’m not sure if he is any special type or not? If you can help that would be much appreciated!

He also looks to be a leatherback. Look at each nail,if even 1 nail has a black stripe on top and parallel to the nail he is not a hypo, if they are clear he is a hypo. You may see a very slight dusting of black, that does not disqualify him as a hypo. Hypo means a huge reduction of dark pigment not an absence of it(that would be Leucistic or Albano) (there are no trye Albano beardies)
To answer you question, they are ALL special :) Yours just happens to be a little more special. He is a cutie and should be stunning as an adult.

Then nursing them back to health and their final family home. I regularly help my reptiles vet with emergency appointments and I also provide the care in my little quenteen,
