With a comb that large and that brightly colored before it has even finished growing feathers on the head, I think that is probably a cockerel.

But I would wait a while longer to be sure. Gender differences usually become much more obvious as they get older.
 
Leghorn about 4 weeks old?
I think it might be a little too soon to tell. Leghorns pullets have large combs early on. In your opinion, is there ANY pink in that comb at all? The comb looks large like a cockerel's but lacking color like a pullet's.

Here's my cockerel at about 4 weeks:
