It is often hard to tell at this stage. I am guessing he has kitten fuzz and he will turn out to be an extra fluffy sh. But time will tell. Usually he tail fur is longer and you see paw and ear tufts on lh kittens.

i agree since he was from a shelter we’re only assuming he’s a potential medium hair tabby ! thanks for ur response 🥰

I thought my first kitten was going to be a longhair because she was so fluffy. She turned out to be a shorthair with a really sleek coat, not fluffy at all.

Looks shorthair to me. I'm no expert and things can change as they age, but seems pretty solidly shorthair to me.
