Am I 4a 4b 4c? Help

I been doing research and thought I understood it but just as easily a different video or forum says otherwise and I’m lost all over again. Can I please have help identifying my type 4 hair category? I also couldn’t tell if I should identify it when it’s dry or wet so I have pictures of both. 

(Bare with me I’m new to this website and I didn’t know how to attach the photos so I added them in the comments)

    Would you say it’s a mix of any 2 or 3? That’s another thing I’m unsure of lol

    Looks like 3C :) I like the curl pictures in this link https://blackhairspot.com/blog/hair-talk/andre-walker-hair-types/ And your curls look bigger than type 4 to me.
