You cannot tell at this age. Whilst the teenage times are possibly the worst as adult hormones kick in, it appears that some continue in the same vein as adults - others do not.

I know its early now, but you may want to search on how to raise cockerels / roos. It seems that problems with human aggression seem more common due to us not knowing how to raise and treat them as much as with the animal itself. I learnt the hard way, and whilst the roo in question made a good stew, I am fairly sure it was my ignorance and inability to read the warning signs that were partly responsible.
Here you go - this should get you started.
