Pure Muscovy or Muscovy x Mallard cross?

This bird is completely new to the location and it was trailing at the end of flock of domestic geese. I am not sure whether it is a juvenile purebreed Muscovy, so caruncles are not properly developed yet, or a Muscovy x Mallard cross (the shape and posture of the head is not quite as in big old muscovies I saw at a different site).

Thank you, I added it as Muscovy to my eBird checklist.
