Hi! I recently picked up a recessive yellow buck at an (American) pet shop, with no markings save a small strip of white on his belly. Could I assume that he is a genetically (albeit very poor) marked/pied mouse? I feel like this is a very basic/common sense question but I appreciate the learning opportunity :)

Yes, you could fairly happily assume that.

You can assume that he is ss, yes, because that's by far the most common. But not all white markings are ss
