I say its too young to sex, but if I had to guess, I'd say cockerel. FWIW- bearded Silkie males are NOT supposed to have large combs or wattles. Bearding suppresses them, and yours is bearded. With the wattle size and color, sure makes me think boy...

I have a bearded white silkie who I am almost sure is a male. He is younger than this silkie. He has a huge dark purple comb and wattles. This is definitely a hen.
