I recently brought a new pet bird, he is so cute and I really like him, but some ppl say he is a jenday and where I bought him they said is a sun conure, what you think?
This a 5, 6 months old conure maybe less??

Definitely not a sun conure.

There's also sunday conure option (hybrid of these two) but I'm not good enough to say in 100% in this age if he is a sunday or jenday conure.... but I think he's a jenday conure

As you can see some yellow feathers have started to come out of his back he did not have those 10 days ago, I dont really know its gonna be a mystery till he grows up a couple months

I disagree.

Looks like a sun to me, a Jenday will get like twice the size of a sun conure Or at least like 100Grams vs 150 Grams. They grow big. Based on the attached picture on the shoulder looks sun sized.

I'm thinking sun. Mine looked like this young. Then the coloring changed over the first year.

Actually he is a pretty big bird for his age, I never had a sun or jenday conure so I can not be sure, I owned green check conures, and he is twice and a half the size of a gcc, but he already has yellow feathers coming from its back, anyways i really would like a sun conure but whatever he is its more than Ok with me.
Thanks for your opinion I appreciate you
 
No I really think it's a sun. but...here is a graphic that may help. THe belly is mostly yellow so....but I dunno.

Well based on this photo mine is a jenday, because his inner wings are redish like in first example, and he is nipping my hands like crazy prolly thinks its food but im bleeding very much because of him, i tried to stop it but he is not bothered
 
Your bird could be a "sunday" conure--a mix between the two. Honestly he looks more like a sun to me too but I won't claim to be an expert.
