Perry's Flare

OK so I recently took some pics of Perry flaring which confuses me. People said that if you could see a "beard" when the betta flares, then it's a boy. Perry has short fins like a girl but when "she" flares, I can see the beard. Here are the pics.

She (or he) IMO has a very interesting body shape... Her ventrals are quite thick and even though her fins are short, they actually seem quite big for a female especially that caudal. I think it might be a young male but that depends on how long you've had him/her. Any egg spot?

I've had "her" for 8 months. I do see an egg spot just in front of where waste comes out.
