HELLLPPP i can't tell the gender of my betta!!

i went to a store earlier and asked for female bettas but I'm not too sure if they are female or not. When i did research on bettas gender they all say the same thing like body shape, fin size, and the white dot under the belly but I'm still too sure. I tried to look for the white dot and couldn't find it so i put him/her into a glass container and put it next to a male Betta...... confusingly it did not flare. Much help appreciated

i'm pretty sure both of my bettas are female though, because i have them in the same tank and they aren't aggressive at all......

the body shape, long ventrals and pointed anal fin all read as male to me.

So remember, when you're feeling very small and insecure,
How amazingly unlikely is your birth,
And pray that there's intelligent life somewhere up in space,
'Cause there's bugger-all down here on Earth.

Long flowing fins are male. Short fins must be female.
