Nice one, always fun to have something interesting pop out.

I am particularly rubbish when it comes to Leo morphs, but I will venture a guess and say one of the types of albino is also in the mix here.

Beautiful gecko. Congrats

Beautiful Murphy's Patternless you got there. Unfortunately, no visual albino lines visible in my opinion.

Haha Wesley, you are far from rubbish!

The eyes are not suggestive of tremper or bell albino lines. However, rainwater albino is possible, should the gecko's background genetics allow it. Check for the colour in the eye veining. Normal eyes should have black veining. If you spot red veining in the eyes, this might be safe to say that this is a albino line. Incubation temperature also plays a huge role in melanin expressoon of the hatchlings. Personally, I have experienced this colour differences in the hatchlings from different incubation temperatures. However, normals will always have black veining. The eye background grey colour might differ little, but the colour of the veins will stay constant (luckily): black for non-albinos and pink-red for albinos.

Will hold thumbs for you for an interesting and exciting outcome with regards to this baby MP. Keep us posted please with follow-up pictures.
