I personally would call it a blaze. To me a strip looks like this.

^^^ I would call that a star and strip. I think technically a blaze is uniform down the face whereas a horse with a star, strip, snip would have a distinct narrowing of the white connecting the star and snip. Anyway, I'd call it a star, strip, snip.

What do his papers say? He should have it listed.

These from AQHA handbook:

REG115.6 STAR, STRIP and SNIP: a marking on the forehead with a narrow extension of the nasal peak and opening up again between the nostrils. These may be connected.

REG115.4 BLAZE: a vertical marking of medium, uniform width extending the length of the face.

Actually, the facial markings could be a star, snip and stripe, because of how big it gets at the top, then skinny until you reach the nose...

What do they call a white mark on the mouth but not between the nostrils???

The OPs horse would be a star, strip, snip. BUT if I was talking to a non-horse person that would look at me like I'm speaking a different language if I said that, I might say something like "uneven" blaze or something.

My mare has a textbook blaze. Your horse would probably be classified as having a connected star, stripe and snip. Darn pinto markings. LOL

Here is my mare's blaze:

Well a snip is usually small, so I would say most likely a blaze then.
