I’m going to say Pullet...

Silkies are indeed tough and hens can crow, BUT...at 4months mine started crowing and trying to breed with the others...he got the crown and nape(head&neck) streamers, the pronounced wing tips and floofy tail.

Here’s my roo when he was about the same age. He’s 6months now.

The first photo is of him when he was 4 months right? He's a beautiful roo ❤
 
The body and lack of comb looks pullet like, but I think I see streamer feathers.... which would normally signal a cockerel. Maybe someone with more experience with silkies can speak to this (I’ve only raised a few). You’ll find out soon enough is my guess.
