Male or Female?

I was given this Betta and it is so SMALL! I've never started one out this small before and I think it's a female, but I thought I'd post a couple pictures and ask the experts.

P.S. I have so much respect for the beautiful Betta pictures all of you post on this website---it took me almost 30 minutes just to get two pictures that were ok to post!!

I'm going to guess male (fin to body proportion, ventral length) but at this stage you can't be sure.
