Default Is this pup yellow as expected?

Hello, I'm a little bit confused about the colour of the pups I recently bred. Mum and dad are both from show lines. Mum I believe is a honey banded dominant spot, dad is apparantly a solid dove.
The girls are all dove tortoishell and white as you would expect. The boys should be yellow but I'm not sure they are yellow? What do you think? Are mum and dad carrying rogue genes or have they possibly been misidentified.

I have included pictures of the boy (yellow? His fur has a grey sheen to it making it more of a beige). His sisters. Dad (solid dove). And mum (honey dominant spot.)

Thanks for your help!

If your female is a honey she should be ppToTo (cinnamon and yellow). As a Dove your Male would be ppaa (cinnamon plus black).
Unless your female is a black carrier then you wont have doves as black is recessive so they would need to get a black gene from both mum and dad.
It's difficult to tell from pics and with babies like these and baby coats.
If your parents are definitely pure then you should have only Honey males and cinnamon tort females. The females look like cinnamon torts I think not doves.
With having so much white it is hard to see what the female actually is! She might actually be a Yellow carrying cinnamon or something else.
