Default Syrian coat color/genetics questions

Hello!
I was wondering what the correct names for the coat colors are for these babies (4 weeks old at the time the pics were taken). Also, I was wondering if this provides any insight into the genetics of the parents since I don't know their backgrounds. The father is a dark-eared white and the mother is silver grey if that helps.

Thanks in advance for any help!

It's hard to really tell if you have no background info for them however there looks to be yellow in the mix. My guess would be grey (? which one) tort and white, 2nd possibly a golden, 3rd Golden tort, 4th grey tort (?)
Carried recessive genes will be influencing the top colour and they look to have cream there.
