I am thinking that this is a cockerel. He was born in July, so around 2 and a half months old.Maybe slightly older. Is this a cockerel or a pullet?

I'd say a cockerel too. The comb is pretty well sized, but he also has that "frown" in his mouth shape and facial structure.

I have 4 silkie babies a little more than 2 weeks old. One has a very wide comb 'area' although it's still completely smooth with no evidence of any bumps. The other 3 have very narrow combs. Could this be an indication of a rooster? The width is very similar, proportionally, to the OP's picture in the 1st post. The baby is, also, bigger and has a lot more feathers on the legs than the other 3. I guess pics would help, huh? We were just watching them and we noticed all of these things.
