Puppy coat differences?

My soon to be pup who is a black irish pied (currently 4 weeks) seems to have a smoother coat than his parti littermates. His white chest is getting longer but there seems to be a difference between the coats. Any insight from the experts here?

There are HUGE differences in coats within the breed. All three of mine have slightly different ciats, and they are more similar than many.

There are also often difference even on the same dog. On Panda, her black hair grows more slowly, and isnít as shiny/silky as her white hair. Kodiís black hair is shinier and straighter than his white hair, though both seem to grow at about the same rate.

I know Denver and his sister both have different feeling coats (hers is a bit coarser than his), but I always chalked it up to different dads (multi-sire litter).

By the time they go home, normal coated Havanese puppies will have "fluffy faces". Short haired Havanese will have a face that looks like a Papillon or a teeny Sheltie, with a very clean muzzle. It's pretty obvious at that age. I don't have a photo of a short hair at going-home age, but here are all of mine at that age.

Your pups look very fluffy at 4 weeks. Mine is not nearly that coated yet.
Should I worry? White chest and paws getting fluffy. Face a little.

I think that’s common. Here’s Oliver around 7 weeks. We brought him home at 11 weeks. He has wavy hair, not at all curly

And 11 weeks. He’s very fluffy now. People say he looks like a stuffed animal. More than one person has seen me holding him from a distance and come up saying, “omg, it’s real! I thought you were holding a stuffed bear!” 😂😂😂

You said he was about 4 weeks?

I dug up my 4 week pictures. The first is at 4 weeks, the next two were 4 days later. After this was when he really started to fluff up.
