Normal leopard gecko or a morph?

I got a leopard gecko a couple of weeks ago and I can't help noticing that the part of his tail closest to the body is orange. He is still a juvenile and I'm aware that their colors change as they grow, but I'm curious if all normal leopard geckos look like this. Can anyone confirm that he is a normal or tell me what morph he is?

He is very young, you can tell because the bands on his back haven't separated into spots yet, so until that happens, it can be hard to tell his morph. I don't think he has enough orange on his tail to be considered a carrot tail. (30% of the tail has to be orange) When he gets somewhat older and he develops his spots, you should post another pic! He is a cutie

I'll definitely post another picture when he's a bit older. A few days after I took this one he shed and the bands slightly faded, and there's a bit more orange on his tail, probably not 30%. Thanks so much for the help!
