male or female??

Hi, I'm trying to breed bettas. I bought 2 bettas in the fish store and were told they were female, however I'm not convinced....They both make bubble nests and flare a lot at each other and other bettas and just seem like males.
I've attached some picture, apologies for the bad quality. Does anyone know if these are male or female? thanks

+1 MrV.
The mouth and head width ratio indicates male. Female's head looks rather pointy compared to male who looks sort of blunt...... I could be wrong.

It makes it hard to tell when I have so many long body females...
