Hey all, can anyone tell the sex of my koi betta?
If you have questions that may help I will answer them as soon as possible.
Thank you!

Are you able to get any pictures of flaring? With the ventral fins easier to see and with the gills fanned out to look for a 'beard'? From what I can see, it looks like maybe the ventral fins are a bit long and I don't see evidence of an egg spot so my really inexperienced opinion is possibly a male? I'm sure someone will come along with a better idea!

I'd say female at first glance, but as @Twist says we really need a picture of it flaring to be more sure

How old are they? Their body is pretty translucent and I can't clearly see ovaries, which leads me to think male, but they're pretty thick in the abdomen which is a more typically female shape so they might just not have developed far enough for ovaries to be visible yet. Very pretty either way!
