Five week old Polish chicken already has ridiculously huge crest… Does this mean male or female?

My Polish chick is five weeks old today, and it has a huge crest! Can this help me determine gender yet?

No it can't but, females tend to have nice rounded crests. Males tend to sprout wild streamers like a rock star. Polish tend to be very difficult to sex early, like Silkies.
Are you certain of it's age? It looks full feathered out
