To my knowledge a roan is supposed to have a dark head and legs and you can clearly see light coloring on his face, if he's a roan there is also something else working on his coloring there. Very cute!

Looks like he is carrying LP (appaloosa coloring), or grey. Hard to tell with just the one picture.

He looks like a varnish grey to me. Possibly with a snowflake pattern? As he's got larger white spots.
