Help with sexing 4" Psalmopoeus pulcher...please!

I just got it, but I would really appreciate if I could sex it. It has a more narrow abdomen and completely black, I am not sure male/female look like at this size. I did hear that there are visible marking differences between male and female, but again this T species is new to me, so I have no idea
yeah sorry for the pic, thanks for the insight I also think it is a male considering how small the abdomen is, but again I know when they mature it is brown completely

Size of the abdomen has absolutely no bearing on the sex. Immature males and females are indistinguishable dorsally. Both males and females have small abdomens after molting, and both have fat abdomens when well fed.

No worries on the pic, sexing pics are very difficult too get...I will say that the best angle is generally a slight back to front angle, this allows the light to get under the lip of hairs and causes the area we need to see to stand out.
