Egg spot? Also Fin type?

I got 3 petco bettas a few weeks ago, and this one i thought from the beginning looked girly, and yesterday i noticed him/her flaring a bunch at my adult female, and was thinking "okay its a boy" but then later in the night i am pretty sure i noticed an egg spot
And looking at the fins, they dont looked shaped as a female VT, but im thinking a HM female?

First picture is the best i could get of what looks to be an egg spot

The dorsal and anal fin point to female, not uncommon for young males to have egg spots.
Females will flare at males, or other females- they can be just as aggressive as males.
If it is a female, I would say VT or delta as the fin, but pointing more towards veiltail (VT).

But give him/her time, sometimes they surprise us lol, a cutie either way :)

Ah yes i think i remember reading something about young males having egg spots sometimes lol, its been a while i havent been on the forum as much as i use to :P

I am leaning away from VT though because of how much of a spread s/he has in the tail when s/he flares, and how much the fins have been growing these last few days, if it is VT then its fins are already as long as an adult VT female
