Male or Female?

I recently got a baby Betta boy from petco in hopes to give him a better life than most other uneducated first time Betta owners. Barthalemule is very happy in his 5.5 gallon tank with his mystery snail, Mystic. From the moment I saw him I knew I wanted to take him home. He is a gorgeous double tale. However as he grows I notice.... His tail is not keeping up like I expect which got me wondering.... is my Bartty possibly Batricia? Some of the photos are from when I first got him and had him in a temporary container while I was cleaning his new home. Have no fear hes in a large tank full time

I'm having a little trouble telling from the photos - and depending on his age, could still be growing and filling out since you got him as a baby - but it's possible he's a double-tail plakat, which would keep the tail shorter than other types.
