Boy?.... or Girl?

I just bought this little fish today. I bought it at Petsmart, couldn't resist... it? It's in a 10 gallon tank. Divided in half. On the other side is another Betta, and roaming around somewhere is a mystery snail. The lid on this fishs cup said Dragon Scale Betta. Nothing else... no male or female printed anywhere on it. Nothing but the Dragon Scale. So I really don't know what kind of Betta it is... Can anyone give me any idea? My male is flaring and flashing his fins and before I put this other fish in he never did anything. But the new fish I bought just looks at him, won't flare, won't flash fins, just looks at him. So I can't tell if it's a male or female by the "beard" and it's mostly white so I can't tell if it has the little white dot underneath or not...

Yep hes a male dragon HMPk
The reason hes not flaring could be because he is intimidated by the other fish. Probably because hes just moved in and hasn't set up a territory.
Submissive males will not flare at a more agressive male.

Trilobite, one question...i wanted to add, because i asked this same question. Will the fish's fins get bigger over time, or will they just stay the same size?

They should stay the same since hes a short finned (plakat) male.
He looks fullgrown

First picture I saw my first thought was "Female. Totally." Then the 2nd picture and 3rd came up and nope. Its a Dragon, like Trilobite said.

I thought for sure you were in Southern California, there is a PetSmart here that had a Dragon that looked just like him, who I haven't seen the past few times I've been there. I though you adopted him ;) but if you're in NorCal, I guess thats impossible. lol
