His fins are fairly short.. Here is my female veiltail... Really not much different than yours, only older...

Maybe he is just a sweet little guy?

Juvenile males sometimes have oviposters too.

OP: he looks male to me. The anal fin is really pointy, not rectangular the way a female's is.

Seems he's just a shy little boy. Some are, not all males flare while others constantly flare.

You can see there that she still has a nice rectangular anal fin - what a lovely female! Males tend to have fins that slope down to a point below the tail. :)
