Is my Pom considered a flat coat because some people on another dog site keeps saying he is considered a flat coat? I thought flat coat means there is no undercoat, which he has a lot of here is some recent pictures of him.

Yes, he is a flat coat. Nicky is too. It doesn't necessarily mean they don't have any undercoat, they just don't have enough to push the coat up to it's full poofyness like the show coats.

His undercoat is pretty thick, but it's not as course in some spots like his back.

This is Cam as a puppy

This is Cam before he had got trimmed

His ears are always going to be large smile

Remy has the same coat. Kinda fluffy in front and back, but pretty flat in the middle. To be honest, I prefer it because it's easy to care for. He did increase in fluffiness over the first 3 years, but he'll always have a flat coat.

Yeah, Nick has like no undercoat on the top of his back, but his ruff and around his legs and pantaloon area has a decent undercoat.

I wasn't quite sure what a flat coat was until now. Wicket doesn't seem to have one as his hair is puffed out all over. His avatar picture is of him at age one.
