Deffinitely not palomino. either buckskin or dun. coat looks undernourished, so it makes it harder to tell. if you add a little vegetable oil to his feed every day it'll make his coat shine

Does he have a dorsal stripe?

He definitely isn't a palomino, that's for sure.

Mods, grant me the serenity to see the opinions I cannot change, courage to change the ones that should change, and the wisdom to spot the trolls.

Not a palomino more so buckskin
Palomino is a color not so much a breed

Do you have a full body picture of him? And I agree with everyone else. NOT palomino.

For your reference and further understanding - the reason the answers are "definitely not palomino" is that your horse has dark mane/tail and the palomino color is, by definition, a gold coat (can be a broad range of shade) with white or cream mane/tail.
