    How old? Polish are very difficult to sex young - almost as tough as sexing silkies. Generally the pullets will have well behaved "bouffant" crests ( full & rounded), males tend to go wild rock star with streamers shooting out . So that is something for you too watch for, or just wait 2-3 weeks and post new photos please.

    The laced varieties have a bit wilder crests than the white crested variety do. To me it currently looks like a pullet.
