I know that some houses have these things, and it's not called a window, because there's typically no glass, so I was wondering if there was a name for these things. Maybe there's a generic word you can use for them, but I can't think of a single one.
If it was like a window in the roof I would probably call it a Skylight or Rooflight. This doesn't seem to be the case here.
If the roof slid open I would probably call it a sliding roof, but again, this isn't the case here.
There is probably a word for it that is borrowed from the culture and language where this house originates, but as I don't know that word I would probably just call it a hinged roof.
