Exclamation Is my betta a female??

I bought my first little female betta, pebbles, from walmart about 3 months ago. I've always assumed she was a female but now I'm not sure because recently I've seen people on this website post pics of their baby males (who dont have long fins yet) and they look just like my girl. Also her fins seem a little long for a baby female. So now I'm wondering if walmart mis-marked my fish and she may really be a he. Could you take a look at these pics and tell me if you think pebbles is a girl or boy and why. Thanks:) (sorry for pic quality she wont sit still!:)

It looks like a girl to me. Her pelvic fins are relatively short for a male in my opinion. Also I don't see any sign of a beard under her chin. I have posted on here on weather or not my Smithy was a boy or girl, turned out to be a boy, his beard gave him away :)

I would wait to see what one of the big shots on here think. I'm just one person's opinion on a site with thousands. I would feel horrible if I was wrong and I caused harm to your fishies

It does look like a female..
About how long is it? If it's still really tiny it could be a baby male.

I am pretty sure your Betta is a girl, but as Olympia said, how big is your Betta?
