If you look in the first photo right on the edge near the right gill those are little bristles starting. Not sure if its male or female yet but I do see some bristles forming!

Yeah I’m really hoping it’s a malemattgirl said:Normally the bristles will start growing around the mouth area. I know that is where they started with Elbert. Once those started getting longer then they started growing up his face.
If you click on my avatar you will see a bigger photo of him and can see the ones around his mouth.
I was the same way and was really happy when I was sure he was a male. I know when they very first started growing I was told that some females have tiny bristles around their mouth so until they started growing longer and then going up hos nose I still didn't know for sure. If I am remembering correctly it took about 2 months after I saw the first sign of bristles until they were long enough to know for sure.Somethingcreative123456 said:Yeah I’m really hoping it’s a male
