If it is 5 months old then it is way behind in development, which makes it difficult to sex. There is no male feathering that I can see, but the comb and wattles are very large and red on a bird that is nowhere near to being ready to lay. Honestly, I would just wait a while longer before deciding its sex.

In the meantime, make sure it gets all the food it can eat. If it doesn't start growing soon, it might be a good idea to post pictures of this bird in the medical forum to find out what is going on. Sorry I can't be more helpful but other posters might have a better grasp of what is going on here.
