White

ADD: Again a basic answer that is technically incorrect. The cue ball just needs to be identifiable from the other balls. The cue ball is the ball that you strike with your cue stick. In many games the cue ball will change during the game.

Also, with the advent of "larger" cue balls in coin operated tables at pubs, many players will use one of the like sized and weighted balls from the playing set rather than the white cue ball.

Black Ball - 7 points

Pink Ball - 6 points

Blue Ball - 5 points

Brown Ball - 4 points

Green Ball - 3 points

Yellow Ball - 2 points

Red Ball - 1 point

White Ball - If potted is a 4 point foul unless all reds and colours have been potted up to the blue ball. At this stage if the white is potted the points foul becomes the lowest colour i.e. 5 Points if blue, pink and black are left or 6 points if pink and black are left

Well the cue ball is suppose to be white but when you hit it many times with the pool stick it starts turning blue from the chalk on your stick.
