By the age of six weeks, these points should have darkened to black; however, the coat will remain snow white.

Biscuit or cream hair behind the pup’s ears usually means the puppy will turn out a cream or a very light orange Pom instead of ice white in color. Small light biscuit patches on the pup’s coat may indicate the puppy is parti colored not white.
It can be difficult to ascertain the color of a Pomeranian pup until after the coat change at around 6 months.
