Is my male halfmoon plakat a female?? or even a halfmoon at all??

First off, I have never seen him flare up at anything. Secondly, even though the description said he was a halfmoon, it doesnt look like a halfmoon. Maybe it's because he's still young?

I'm no expert, but looks female to me. Look for an egg spot maybe :D

Like I said, he/she has not flared up since I got him/her. My gut instinct says it's a female. I'm going to return for a male halfmoon maybe.

that is definantly a male because the egg spot would have left a little gap between the tail fin and the belly fin even if it is a halfmoon

Here are two more pictures. So what do you think? Male or female?

I've come to a conclusion!! This is a female. Short dorsal fin. Does not flare at other bettas. As much as I want to keep her, I will be sending her back and will be getting a male. She is a gorgeous girl though!
