In which case your ghost is het amel.
With corns having been mass produced its safe to say that almost every single corn will be carrying unknown genes.

which means can carry any different colours?
Kind of.
Almost all corn snake genes are recessive so you need both parents carrying the gene for it to be visually expressed in offspring.
In this case one snake was a ghost, the other amelanistic.
If the ghost was a genetically pure ghost then there is no way that an amel hatchling would have appeared. That has only happened because the ghost was carrying the amel gene.
Because corns have been bred in commercial numbers, getting a genetically pure morph is frankly impossible.
But you will never know unless you pair it with another snake with that gene.

That is a gorgeous candy cane amel. You don't see many of those anymore. It's not a morph, but a line bred amel.
I would also separate those hatchlings. Feeding them together is a recipe for disaster.
One snake per container.
As each one sheds, offer a defrost pink. Most will take it, occasionally you need to be creative to get them feeding.
