I don't think the spot is big enough to qualify as a pinto and unless one parent is a registered paint you're out of luck.

I'm not a colour expert by any means but is it possible that he's chestnut sabino rather than red roan? (looking at the high whites, big blaze, jagged white, and the "roan" could be sabino ticking. My bay mare has some of that as well)

Also, if I'm not mistaken, APHA markings have to have pink skin underneath to qualify, and as bird catcher spots are not white markings that are present at birth, I don't think they have pink skin underneath.

He is not red roan. He is chestnut. Appears to carry sabino.

He is not a Paint. A Paint is a breed. He's TWH from what I recall.

He has white markings from one or more pinto genes.

He would be considered a pinto TWH, not a paint. To be a paint he would have to be registered APHA. Pinto is the color, paint is the breed. All paints(should be, anyway, barring SPBs), are pintos, but not all pintos are paints.

He's a chestnut sabino. This white markings are being caused by sabino. The biggest indications are the pointed tip to his socks and the jagged edges on them and also the symmetry of his blaze, along with his white lips.

That spot is just a random spot. It could be a birdcatcher spot or it could be caused by sabino.
