Longish fined female?

so i just got my female betta, im sure it is a female because I found the egg spot, and she has long flowing fins, this confuses me they usually have very short stiff fins, can anyone tell me the breed maybe?

Do you think you can post a picture?
I do believe it's possible for a male to have an egg spot...

Roughly how long is your betta? Younger males sometimes have egg spots.

and she's about 1-1 1/2 inches without her back fin, with it she's about 1 3/4 inches, so not that long so i'm thinking she's a female, but idk

I agree. Those are some REALLY long fins for a female, plus he sounds young based on his size :)
Another thing you can do is put a mirror up to the tank and see what he looks like when flaring. A male will have a "beard" under him where as a female will not.

Its a girl.

Long fins... well they're long finned fish.

Body shape and gill plates scream female.
