Gender?

My room mate bought this betta at Petco as a baby. I cannot tell if it is a female. We have put it in a hurricane vase with 3 separate males seeing if it is a female but not a single male built a bubble nest and they try to attack each other. This leads me to believe it is a male. It has an ovipositor. I am very confused, so if you have any advice on what gender it is, it would be appreciated.

If it has an ovipositor and it really looks female its a female. Some male and female bettas will fight and not even think of mating depends on the bettas and the females and some are just not ready. Females can actually build bubble nests too so don't freak out if you see one.
