    I am certainly no expert but it looks like you have a cockerel, because of the redness and the three distinct rows on the comb.

    I do think that's a cockerel.
    In any breed, this age is still too young to count on a male having sex feathers. 13 weeks is more common. Add in the fact Brahmas are giants and slower to mature, and your boy may not get sex feathers for a few months.
