A. merianae - male?

Just rehoused my juvenile A. merianae and found its last moult. It's a boy then, right?
How big is it????? IME some avics don't show a prominent/visible flap until 2.5''-3''
 
@Liquifin That moult is 2,5". He(?) is now 2 3/4"-3". I also tried to find a flap with a needle under the microscope, but couldn't find it.
 
@Thekla Then definitely a male. But your'e not alone. My luck with arboreals suck, almost every arboreal T. I have gotten turned out male. But I still appreciate them till the end.
 
I’m definitely not an expert, but there is a spot there. I believe that’s a definite sign of male organs.
