Is it a bantam? Could we get a closer picture of the head/neck & tail base? What breed & AGE please.
Judging from the tail feathers it's looking more pullet-ish to me. But a better pic would help confirm that.
X2, pictures specifically of the saddle/tail region would be very helpful.
It looks like a bantam cochin (pekin here in the UK) and does appear to have female feathers but that is a lot of comb for a pullet so it may be a late developing cockerel. I'm going to say, if it's under 5months old it's probably a cockerel, over 8 months, most likely female and should be in lay from the redness of that comb. Pekins are usually easy to sex at 5 weeks because the males get noticeably large, red combs early on. If you have had this bird from a chick and it has had that red comb from being small, then it's male.
As stated by others above, knowing the age and a better, close up, side profile photo would help.
I think it is a cochin bantam pullet close to laying
