There's no real way of telling until they fully grow their feathers (not when they start to grow their feathers as their feathers can change colours completely).
Its a real pretty chick though. I'm guessing it could be a tuxedo, but I don't know a lot about button quail colourations.
No idea but from the one chick I've had, they change colors quite a bit. Ours was white, then dark, then lighter gray and is now super dark with white/gray wings.
He's a spaz and I had to grab him yesterday so he's extra spooked. It was hard to get a pic, but this is him. He's mostly dark except you can see a bit of lighter feathers poking through on the top of his head and when he opens his wings, you can really see the white feathers on his wings. There's a lot more white than you see when they're folded.

Edited to add his mate because she's so beautiful and sweet. her feathers are a little ruffled here, this is the day we got her. Her markings are so pretty and normally look perfect:
