Default Ball python morph

Hey guys, I got a young ball python last week and today was my first day handling him as I was letting him settle in. I did feed him a medium mouse on Monday and he took that straight away so I was quite happy with that. When I help him he did ball up a bit at first but did loosen up after a few minutes. while I had him out I thought I'd take a picture to share with you guys. I also was wondering if anyone could figure out what morph he was, im kinda new to morphs so I don't really have a clue. Also, I know you can never really tell by size but I reckon he's about 8-12 months old, what do you think?


anyways, here's Oscar

not sure as I got him from my cousin. he might just be normal but he looks similar to other morphs as well, I'm uneducated when it comes to morphs so

In all likelihood he's a normal. There are some morphs that are quite subtle, like yellow belly for example, but it's unlikely that you would come by one in the way you did. He does have a relatively reduced pattern, but that's not necessarily a "morph".
So I think he's a lovely little normal

if it wasn't sold to you as a morph in this day and age... 99.9% it's a normal/wild type
