Is that big enough to sex it from the horn ? I see a tiny button
Both genders will have the little nub as slings and juveniles, so that's not an accurate way to determine gender on young specimens. Need to wait until it's bigger to see if the horn is developing more.

Thanks ! What is the average size where the dimorphism gets obvious ?
 
In my experience, the females start to develop the horns around 3" DLS, maybe a little smaller. Males will just keep the little nub.
