Short or long coat?

Hi I am wondering if anybody with experience can determine if my new puppy will be short, medium or long coated? The dad is in the first picture(mostly black medium/long coat?) Mom is the second pic(sable short coat). My little guy is 3 1/2 weeks and is in the fourth pic. Thank you!

It is WAY to hard to tell at this young age.

Can't help with the coat length, but it sure is a cute pup.

Is it true that both parents have to have the long coat gene if wanting to get a long coated puppy? Or could a puppy have long hair if only one of the parents have long hair?
