    Thats a cockerel. It has a large red comb for only being seven weeks old. Still, to be certain, could you post a picture of it standing?

    That is a lot of redness in the comb for a pullet, but the comb itself isn't that large, and the bird doesn't have a particularly cockerel-ish stance/shape. For now, I'm going to say pullet. New photos in a few weeks will help better determine your bird's gender.
