It looks like a female to me. It's just clamping its fins sometimes, not entirely changing their shape.
Agreed... male livebearers tend to always have it clamped.... ( and its a very different shape to a clamped female analfin....)

As for colouring, it can either be called a Dalmatian or a salt and pepper... those terms are used interchangeably from my experiences.
