Question Male Or Female

Hello this is my first post and I was just wondering if my betta is a male or a female?
If it is a female i wanted to put her in a tank with other ones

In the picture he/she looks green-ish but he/she really is white and its hard to tell also because he/she is very active

Welcome to the forum! :)
Just looking at his body shape and fin shape/length, I'd say most definitely a Plakat(short-finned)or possible a Half-Moon Plakat(any chance you could get a flaring pic or two?) Male, and hes quite a lovely one too ;)

Wow all this time i thought he was a female because stupid petsmart labeled him as one. And as soon as i can get him to flare ill post one. Its also weird that he doesnt build bubble nests like all my other males

Hes a HMPK. Short fins are no indication of females.

he is either a superdelta or a halfmoon, does his tail make a perfect D shape when he flares?

Not quite when he flares it just gets really big I was doing research but didn't find any hard evidence but I was thinking he might be a twin tail halfmoon
