Default Is Pogo a girl or a boy?

I rescued Pogo from the RSPCA about 3 weeks ago. I think he's a boy but there's a bit of brown on either side of his nose and my other, definitely male budgie, treats him as if he is a girl i.e. mounting him and pruning and feeding My other budgie has a bright blue cere which is shiny and vibrant. However, Pogo has a dull blue cere which is turning brown?? It's definitely not a discharge.

Thanks in advance,

PS. Charlie (the other budgie is fine) if anyone is reading from my last thread.

Pogo is definitely a boy and I'm glad you have adopted him!
I don't see any brown on the cere, just a darker blue colour.

Pogo is the pastel coloured budgie. His cere was a more pale blue when we got him and it's still getting progressively darker but it was never shiny or bright like Charlie's.

I don't see anything wrong with him, his cere and beak look healthy to me.

That's good news too, he just hates humans. Slowly getting better though.

This is definitely not the best picture of Charlie though
