Default Sexing my newcomer

Hello all
My little new arrival is almost ready to come out of quarantine and I suddenly realized I haven't figured out the gender yet XD I have a female with the same mutation as this one and she is REALLY tan on her cere by now (11 months old) This one is supposedly around 10 months but I'm a bit confused due to the light blue/ white tones. I googled a bit and as I still don't trust my judgement I decided to ask you lovely people for assistance

Here are some pictures in natural light.





Thanks in advance

Aaaw yay Thank you so much Is it the white and light blue combo that gives her away? I'm trying to pick up details like that so I can identify them more easily in the future She looks so different from my other female of the same mutation who is completely dark brown by the same age

Yes, it's the very light powdery blue colour around the edges of the cere and the white. Her cere is showing the typical colours of a female who is not in breeding condition. When she goes into breeding condition her cere will progressively get tan till it is dark brown in colour.
