New baby Betta.. Boy or Girl

Hello, I recently bought a new baby betta from Petco labeled baby boy. I was wondering if Toby is actually a boy because lately I have been thinking that he is actually a she.

Ooh, super difficult to tell. S/he is so little still. Does she have the little white bump on her underside, just in front of her fin? I can't tell on the pic, even if I zoom way in.

I'm having same issue with one of my "walmart rescues" that was labeled as Female -- I created a post w/ pictures...


10 Gal, my first brood from Mr. Poirot (Blue/Red Veiltail) and Ms. Ellie (Red/White Dumbo)

10 Gal, Mr. Ballou (inky Purple/Blue halfmoon?) + mystery snail, live plants - Betta Bulbs, Pothos, and water plants I can't pronounce...

29 Gal Sorority/Community: 8 Fm Bettas, 3 minnows, 5 Red Eyed Tetras, 1 stowaway guppie, 3 Ghost Shrimp, myst snails, live plants - LOTS of Pothos, Betta Bulbs, Amazon Swords

Misc. 5 Gal, 2.5 Gal, etc. for Quarantine, Breeding, etc

I am tending to think girl - i think i see the ovaries in the second photo you posted - the darker mass low and behind the head. I could be wrong though.
