Young Betta Fish-- anyone know what type it is?

I just purchased a betta! It isn't full grown. Do any of you have any idea what gender/type it may be?

Here's a picture:

Tell me what you think! By the way, it's name is Izzy. :)

Edit: Also, the packaging said 'baby betta', so I'm not sure exactly HOW old it is.

I can't tell. The picture is clear but the Betta is too young, it could be anything

Sorry-- it's hard to get a good focus. Here are some more pictures:

Yup! too young :D there are things you can probably try to figure out though. Put a mirror infront of it and see if it flares. count how many times the ray divides in the tail.
Is there an egg spot?
Give it a few weeks though, and the distinguishig characteristics should show up :D
