If that batch of chickens are all the same age, then your Barred Rock is a rooster due to the large red comb and wattles.

Yes, it is a cockerel--and I agree with the others, not a pure breed rock. Yes, you need to start handling him! He is a pretty rooster though :)

I agree with LiraEstates and beetandstreet.  Didn't get a chance to read all of the other posts.  A beautiful roo!
