Can a regular cat have a ragdoll kitten?

Tres wondered up and she wasn't fully grown yet. She is all black with 3 white spots on her stomach. We kept her inside and shortly after finding her found she was pregnant! She had 2 white kittens in March of this year. The only cat we ever saw outside was a black and white cat. We assume he is the father. We had Tres fixed after they were born. One kitten he long hair, and markings that made him look like a type of breed. He looks like a Ragdoll or Birman. He is obviously not a pure breed anything, but I'm curious:
1. What breed does he look like?
2. Can a breed skip generations?

    Look blue eyes. According to the breed standards for Ragdoll cats, all examples of this breed must have bright blue eyes. If you see a cat without blue eyes, it is not a true Ragdoll cat.
    • Some breeders advertise non-blue-eyed variations of the Ragdoll breed. However, this variant is not accepted by any major Ragdoll association and isn’t included in the written Breed Standard for Ragdoll cats.
      Ragdoll cats can come in a variety of colors and patterns; however, the accepted breed standard establishes that these cats must exhibit the pointed breed characteristics to be included. This means that the cat’s body will be lighter in color than the points of its body – the face, ears, tail, and legs.
    • Ragdolls come in four main patterns: bi-color, van, mitted, and colorpoint. These patterns also appear in six major colors – seal, blue, chocolate, lilac, red, and cream – while the points can be solid, lynx, tortie, or torbie.
