Coming from petsmart he is going to be 99.99% pigona viticeps. Color doesn't tell species or genetics, just morph. Genetics is going to display as stuff like translucent, hypo, leatherback, zero, witnlitz, ect. Post picks and we can help you identify any specifics.

Your beardie is a normal scale, and i don't see any visible mutations, so i would say normal there also. It could be het for anything thought but the only way to know would be to prove it out throught breeding.
Its still a very gorgeous beardie though.
It's adult colors will likely be beige and orange, but you can never really be sure till they are done growing.

The ugliest beardie ever hatched was still beautiful 😆 🤣
If you are new to beardies, maybe go over your habitat setup and feeding habits, list your lights, uvb what type it is , long tube or coil/compact and distances. Your basking , type of bulb and basking temp, and cool side temps and how your taking them. (Both are absolutely critical to a beardies health) what type of feeders your using and how many you feed. And what your using for calcium and multivitamins.
There is a lot of folks here that can give you pointers if anything is off just a little.

Those dail thermometers are not accurate please get a digital probe thermometer to ceck basking temps. For a baby it needs to be 105 to 110.
I can't see the uvb in your pics. If you are using a coil/compact, please get a long tube. The screw in obes that go in the domes are no good. The Arcadia pro t5 desert 12% are good (24 inch) or the ZooMed 10.0 t5, but i have had trouble with the ZooMed fixtures so i use the Arcadia. Otherwise you setup looks nice.

Can beardies eat Mustard Greens? Hope so I bought some along with some Cilantro. Needed to try something different. He won't eat his broccoli or cauliflower he used it eat it. So I thought I'd give it a try.

My female bearded dragon has recently started gasping for air all the time. She can’t get sleep or really do anything because she has such a difficult time breathing. I think it might be a RI but I’m not completely sure. Any thoughts?
