It was a gift from a family friend! Would you happen to know it's gender?

NOPE. It was just gifted to me recently! I wasn't sure if it was a flowerhorn or not.

Only two ways to be sure of gender: If its female it will lay eggs about once a month. The other way to know for sure is by examining the vent and anus. Females have a "U" shaped vent that is as large or larger than their anus.
A males vent is almost always smaller than their anus.

Hi, upon this question where can you look for the vent I see a hole underneath the fish but only one? What else to look for and where to tell if it's make or female?

There are two holes. If you can only see one, the other vent is tiny so your fish is a male. The vent on a female very visible.
