Looks like a cornet to me. Not a trumpet.

It is a cornet. When I was in band, all players played cornet rather than trumpet. They’re interchangeable, play wise.
I’m concerned about his cheeks puffing. That’s bad form and his teacher should correct it.

One of the first things I learned in 7th grade band as a (then) cornet player.
