Sexing my BN plecos?

Hey guys, I have had these two guys/gals for a few months now, bought them at 1" each hoping for a pair, but I feel I have landed myself two females but not too sure!

Was looking to see what you guys think I got here.

One is 3" head to tail end, the other is 2.5" head to tail end.

No visable bristles appearing, other than around edge/lip.

Is it too soon to be sure I got myself 2 females?

Also, sorry for the horrid photo quality.

I would hazard a guess at all photos being female from other pics I've seen. Any chance you can put the camera on a book and then carefully press the button? I've had to do that myself before I got my rickety little tripod.
