    Hard to tell from this angle, nest to see it from a side shot. If I were to give you a guess I pretty sure it's a rooster. And what age is it.

    Usually in the white crested one I've had the females crest is very round and the males are more flowing, I gonna stick with my rooster guess.

    I also think cockerel. The sideview is from too far away to be helpful

    With those wild pointed crest feathers (sometimes referred to a the rock star look), I'm also thinking cockerel. Pullets typically have shorter more rounded feathers and a more rounded appearance to their crests.
