It is a Silver Sebright. They should have rose combs, but a single comb can occasionally appear, especially if he's from a hatchery. What often happens is that the rose comb chickens have lower fertility than those with single combs, which basically makes it hard for hatcheries to produce the rose comb birds, and therefore they use the single comb bird instead, which allows them to get higher hatchery rates. So yours is a purebred Silver Sebright with a single comb.
