Silkies generally have to be older to sex. Sometimes you can't tell gender till they either crow or lay an egg. Because the comb seems somewhat "pronouced", just a guess would be cockerel,but time will tell smile.png

Early guess is just a guess but,  I think a cockerel  because of comb and not much crest. The bigger the comb the more it pushes crest to the back of head.
