Male with Egg spot??

I was looking at my fish, like I always do, after I've fed them and I realized that Tug has a little white dot, which is in the same place, with the same looks as an eggspot. Could this mean he's a long finned female(if that's even possible) or that he's just one of those males with a fake egg spot? He does have long fins, his anal fin is pretty long and his tail is growing back after finrot(when I bought him) and then the filter I recently took out because it was catching his tail...

Males can have egg spots, most of the time, though, it's when they're young and it disappears as they age. Some females can have long fins, some males can have short fins. Most females are a little chubby around their middle, most males on the other hand are very stream-lined.

I shall have to take a look at Tug some more... I'm thinking he's just a male with a fake egg spot :p He does seem to have a larger stomach though...
