I think it either one looks fine, but only when its well trimmed when he's roached. Right now he looks like a strange trojan horse, but in that second picture I think it looks super cute on him. Roached mane has to be maintained and trimmed at least once every 4-6 weeks to look tidy.
If you do grow it out, you might trim it all closer to the same length though, and band/braid it while its growing out. You can also braid it in the summer to keep him cool. That's what I do with my mini mare, who has super thick mane as well that reaches almost to her shoulder (was past her shoulder, but she got hot and rubbed it out when I forgot to braid her >.>) and she stays cool. I do a fast and easy running braid, and re-do it every 2-3 days.
