    i would call peat a sediment that can be a component of a sedimentary rock, but peat alone is not considered a rock. it's decaying organic plant matter.

    peat is not a type of coal. peat is a component of coal, however. the definition of peat is decaying plant material, and therefore would not be considered a sedimentary rock.
