In genetics, the term dominant gene refers to the allele that causes a phenotype that is seen in a heterozygous genotype.
Incomplete dominance occurs when certain of the recessive gene appears within the phenotype of the organism, causing a blend in between both the dominant and recessive gene.

 Coat Color Genetics (for hedgehogs)
This is because of the phenomenon known as dominant and recessive expression.
If the mode of inheritance between the R and r alleles is incomplete dominance then the cross of these two flowers would yield a pink flower with the genotype Rr-- In this mode the two different traits co-exist and 'blend' together to form a new color (red mixed with white is pink).
The codominant mode of inheritance is like incomplete dominance since the two traits coexist, but, instead of blending together to form a new color, they separate to form a new pattern.

The only difference is that instead of using a capital letter for the dominant trait and a lowercase letter for the recessive trait, the letters we use are both going to be capital (because neither trait dominates the other).
