    Yeah Dom boy. It's a rose comb, that's why it looks different.

    Yep, as ella said, the comb will never be as big since it isn't a single comb. Look at the last picture you posted and you can see the long, thin, pointy feathers in the tail and some saddle feathers drooping down in front of the tail. Definitely a boy!
