I'm a first time gecko owner but an experienced reptile caretaker. I'd like to know from you guys which morph you think I have. I know I could almost definitely find out on my own, but experience saves me time and effort!

I have also included some pictures of his enclosure. I'd love some feedback there as well!
(Temps: 90°F - 73°F from basking to cool side) (Humidity stays around 30%-35%)

I agree with @acpart, you have an albino! I noticed that he/she has some stuck shed on his front toes, that needs to be taken off. You can try gently pulling it, but if that doesn't work you could try soaking his feet in a warm container of water. The water shouldn't come up past the gecko's belly. Put a piece of paper towel in so he has something to stand on. Hope this is helpful!
P.S. Is there something wrong with his eye? It shouldn't be shut/squinting all the time.

These are older pics from a few weeks ago. He is free of all stuck shed, including that which was unknowingly crusting up his eye ! Ahhh it was super scary, but I removed it carefully as per tutorial videos and vet instructions.
I'm worried though. Sam here has had it removed for about a week now and while I'm cleaning his eyes with warm water and a qtip almost every day, he still has his eyes closed. I've even had to un-stuck one of them again. I suppose I'll be taking him back to the vet for a routine parasite fecal test and hopefully some eye drops to help him out.

Ahhh, I'm glad you're on top of it!
Good luck at the vet if you decide to go!
