Male or Female

All I know is that mom is a Koi Plakat and this beauty was born in September. Baby has grown like a weed in the last 2 weeks. I am wondering if you guys think this is a Male or female.

I don't see any egg spot (could bee to young yet) and with the color there doesn't seem to be any ovaries visible either. It has the body shape of a male, so I would give my best guess that it is a he.

I just enlarged the photo and that is a ventral line for sure. I dub thee Male.

With a pale-bodied fish like that I would expect to easily see ovaries through their flesh, and I can't see really any suggestion of them, so I'm also on the bandwagon of saying it's probably a male. And what a lovely looking boy he is!
