Welcome to the forums!

Your Jewel is a boy, no doubt there. He's gorgeous!

I'm moving your thread to the "Sexing Budgies" section of Talk Budgies.

The shopkeeper was wrong, pet store employees may not be knowledgeable enough to tell genders, and some will flat out lie in order to make a sale.
Your budgie is 100% male, there is no mistaking.

Ah ok then but can male budgie have a purple cere and a tiny bit of blue around their nostrils? Because in person it looks purple rather than blue in the pictures iv taken.

Young male budgies will have pinkish/purplish ceres. Upon reaching maturity, the cere will turn a royal blue colour. In certain colour mutations the immature pink/purple colour will remain throughout their lives.

Young females will have very light faint bluish mingled with white ceres and white around the nostril area. As they grow, the white will spread more evenly on the cere and as they start to mature, the cere will begin to get a tan colour till it reaches a dark brown colour when first coming into breeding condition.
When out of condition, the cere will revert to the creamy white colour.

If you are worried, there is no problem in housing two male budgies together.
Generally speaking, budgie boys get along well and fast become best buds.
