Is this grizzled silkie showing signs of being a boy?

i recently got 3 silkie chicks, they are only 2 weeks old so I know it's way too early to tell, but my black frizzled silkie has a much larger comb compared to the other 2 that have really no combs, and also has noticeable wattles, where the other 2 have no wattles. Could this possibly be the start of this chick being a boy? Sorry for the bad picture, it's hard to get a good one! But you can see the comb and wattles under the face..

It's not a pure bred silkie, I see no crest, and it has a single comb. It's too young to guess at it's sex yet.

It does not have black skin! The other 2 silkie chicks do have black skin, this one has black frizzled feathers and pink skin. I got them from wilco, can they be mixed breed? Is it still part silkie? Thank you for the help! We are new to chickens :)

Does it have feathered legs? Could be a frizzle Cochin.

Yes it's legs have lots of feathers! But I just checked, and while the other 2 silkies have 5 toes, this one has only 4? I'm so confused now!
