Colour question

Hi all, I'd just be interested to know what colour I can actually call my boy Smudge. He's grey, black & white. Although he almost looks cream around his mouth and his chest. I'm absolutely clueless about this stuff, so I'm just interested in finding out!
Any help is appreciated!!

Does he have any tan color anywhere? He looks a lot like my Decimal who I consider a brown mackerel tabby and white. I would have thought gray tabby, but when I read online I determined she would be categorized as brown.

Yeah he has TINY little tan/cream bits around his face and his chest, but he's mainly black, white & grey!

Blue Mackeral Tabby....referred to as "blue" by cat fanciers, or commonly grey tabby, blue tabbies, often have a creamy or buff color around face. The barring or striping can be dark grey as well.
