which name of Zn(OH)2 compound is right? Zinc Hydroxide, or Zinc(||) Hydroxide ?

i know that Zinc is one of the metals cations, but i don't know if it's a transition metal too. I asked my professor once and he preferred the second one Zinc(||) Hydroxide, but after i researched it i found out that the name Zinc Hydroxide is right.
So i'm confused.
