Dreaming in colour

No, I don't think so. If that person is blind from birth, it must be something wrong with his eyes right? Like, undeveloped or something.

I am not blind, but my roomie is a partial and has no color vision, and she does not dream in color. Since she's never seen it, she has no concept of what it "looks" like. She knows it exists, but can't really go beyond the black and white (and grey) world she sees.
