Exclamation Male or Female?

My boyfriend recently bought me a betta from Walmart. It said female on the cup, but it was on top of a sticker that said male. It can't hold still long enough for me to see an egg spot and it has a pale body anyway. It will flare at my other boys, but doesn't try to get to them. Is this a female, or maybe a male plakat? Here's a picture (Excuse the bad quality, I have an old camera)

Judging by the length of the ventrals I would say male.

I think its a female veiltail. It could be a very young male veiltail, but I doubt it as petstores usually sell them when they are older...
I have a female with the same fin lengths as this one...

I would say female. I have several females that look like that and I made sure they had egg spots because I questioned it as well.
