Male or female betta?

TheWhiteOpalReiichi

I’ve been waiting for four weeks to find the perfect beta. I finally found one the other day. I brought The Betta home two days ago and he is acting completely fine and is loving his 20 gallon tank. But since I’ve gotten him, he’s only flared once and hasn’t attacked any of my shrimp or even thought about chasing my other fish in the tank. This beta is extremely docile and then I thought of the question what if “he” is a “she”? Could anyone please let me know if what betta I got is actually a female, or just an extremely calm male. He was labeled as a Premium Male Butterfly at petsmart. He/She has cellophane fins and gills so it’s hard to tell the gender by looking at the “beard”

From his fins, he definitely looks male to me. He's almost the exact copy of my betta, but mine is a plakat.

My boy Sabbath doesn't ever flare at all but he's very obviously male. My female is very obviously female, but she has flared at me once or twice during a water change! Could just be his personality
