|I'm pretty sure (someone correct me if I'm wrong) that "triple coat" is just a marketing ploy. In fact, all the "triple coat" pictures I've seen online are just pet quality Pomeranians. Beautiful dogs, nonetheless, but simply pet quality. I saw one, however, that was a Pomeranian that looked like he had NEVER been groomed, labeled "triple coat". That was a sad sight to see.
I've never heard flat coat used at all. I imagine it's just a term people use to describe pet quality Pomeranians. (As it's noted in the AKC standard that a soft, flat or open coat is a fault) In which case, yeah, I think your pom would be. Nothing wrong with that, though. Both Sweeney and Ninja are and they're great dogs regardless.
ETA: All poms do only have a double coat. Even pet quality coats are double coated, they're just flatter, more open, or softer than a show pom.
