Probably male due to the amount of comb...but 6 weeks is way to early to call a Silkie.
Also, to determine sex in a Silkie, the stance is important, so post photos of full profile later when the bird is around 3 months of age.
Female Silkies sit lower, squattier, and have a more rounded look.
Male Silkies stand higher, are lankier.
Males tend to have mohawks while females have pompoms for crests.
Females have small combs and no wattles, males will have a larger comb and may have some wattle.
But they have to have time to mature first and can change appearance as they grow.
X2 on LofMc's post.
x 3 that is quite a comb for such a young bird.
