Male or Female?

My fish is driving me crazy! I bought it as a Petco Baby Betta and I've gone back and forth between whether I think its a male of female. I thought it was a female and its in my sorority and has been doing just fine with the other girls, but now its long finnage is making me question myself once again. And I can't see the oviposter anymore (I could see it when the fish is younger). I need help before I drive myself crazy.

I'm totally new to owning bettas so this is just totally a guess but it looks like a boy to me.

I'd say thats a delta tail boy, I'm not expert either though. Hopefully one of the experts will pop in and say what they think. :)

Definitely a male!!
He's a rountail, btw. Unless he develops a wider caudal.

*face palm* I was trying to think of what kind he was and completely spaced the round tails. I agree with vilmarisv.

I was thinking roundtail male too. Sigh. I was hoping I was wrong.

I'm really surprised at how well he gets along with my girls. He has flared but he just this week started to get that beard. He's still very young. I'm also surprised at the lack of a bubble nest. Especially since he's been in with the girls for about a month or so. Maybe he's too young still? Idk.

Looks more like a young veil to me. But that's a boy.
