juvie male question??

Ok so I'm slightly concerned that one of my new female is actually a young male
How do you tell? What had me thinking so is
#1 I've never had females before so I have no clue!
#2 "her" fins are longer/fuller then all the others in the tank
#3 she is quite the little boss ladie of the family
Either shes a young male or she's a HM female which
Is totally possible I would just like to be able to tell for future purchases
Pictures to follow

Look for a small slightly protruding white dot between its anal and ventral fins.

The white arrow points at an ovipositor. Juvie females have them.
