Can you help me make sure if this is a male molly?

Hello everyone,

At the pet store I heard varying opinions; one worker claimed males and females were put in different gallons at the store - another claimed he wouldnt know if the fish was male or female as they are all mixed in their tanks.

I did some digging and found that the male is more torpedo-shaped and have tucked in gonopodia. I am pretty sure two of my fish are females, but my third is questionable.

It depends on its swim movement, but it looks like both of the s below. I got this from google.



Here is my fish below.


The analfin is sometimes tucked in as above, and at times spread open.

If it opens to a fan then female ..
Females can tuck their fin up to look like a male but males can not open theirs to look like a female ..
