My Baby's Growing Up :')

When I just got Diamante about a month ago, he/she was 1/4", now he/she is a little over 1/2" maybe about 3/4". Growing a bit slow, so I think I may need to bump up the amount of water changes. I think Diamante may be a girl, because I see a tiny egg spot and he/she has small ventrals. I'm still not sure though, because I've heard that males often fake an egg spot. I also think he/she's a dragonscale :) So hard getting these pics XD

I'll post updates on Gallifrey later on.

thanks X]
I'm really curious as to whether or not this fishy's a he or she. I'm starting to think male, but I'm not too sure. He/she's been flaring at all the adult bettas a lot and is still pretty small. What do you think? :)

Thanks guys :)
I think the baby might have a tiny one, but s/he's really aggressive towards Gallifrey (they're in a divided tank). When Gallifrey (pretty she's a she) swims over, the guy begins flaring and attacking the divider. XD That's why I'm not too sure. Also the body shape looks male to me.
Could s/he be a plakat, veiltail, hm etc.? S/he's about 1.5-2 months old and has had dragonscaling/heavy iridescence since he was younger than 5 weeks.

Do you have any photos of your little male dragonscale betta when you first picked him up at the store?

I definitely didn't see any dragonscales fry at my LFS.

How many cm is he now?

He (I'll just assume he's a boy for now XD) is now about 2/3 of an inch. Sorry I don't have a cm measurements; it's hard to tell. His coloring hasn't changed much, he's just grown longer. Diamante was the only one I saw at my LFS too.
Lol; his eyes just follow your finger everywhere
