Baby betta gender guessing game

I got a baby betta from Petco a month ago. Since then, I've been jumping back and forth on what gender I think it is. My betta-keeping friend insists that it's a male, as does my sister. I think it's a female... But then again, I'm really not sure.

Today it flared for the first time my VT Elliot. I had a view from the back, so I couldn't see much, but I did see a thin, clear layer behind the operculum. I don't know if that means anything, but it was there :P

I'd love to get a second (or fourth) opinion on its gender. Anybody want to guess?

Sorry the pics are so blurry... They're all from my android. And the baby moves so much!

These are in its old .5 gallon. I just moved it into a 1 gallon, so those pics a little bubbly. For some reason, the 1 gallon pics are clearer.

If there's anything that would help identify it better, let me know and I can try to get a picture of it!

Thanks! Lol, I think it's a female too. It has a very similar personality to my female CT Emma. Not quite as insane, but almost XP

My sister started calling it Elvis and the name kinda stuck... So even if it's a girl, its name will be Elvis XD

judging by body shape... I'm thinking female. However I may very well be mistaken

Silverfang - That's what I've been thinking. It's just so hard to tell when they're so tiny!

Ayane - YES!! That heater is super super super hot. I normally just keep it on for a few hours. Since I'm in college, I just come back to my dorm in between classes and turn it off. But it's really annoying.

I'm gonna buy new heaters this week. I have a 25W Elite submersible heater that I love. It's fully adjustable and doesn't roast the fishies... It's 1000x better than the Aqueon heater.
