Sexing Polish, are these saddle feathers?

This little guy/gal is almost 9 weeks old. Based off the lack of comb and wattles, I was sure I had a girl, but these flowing, pointier feathers are giving me pause. This is my first Polish chicken, so I’m not sure if these are normal Polish feathers, or saddle feathers.

Polish are difficult to sex. I think you need to wait a few more weeks and post new photos then.

Also, that bird is not old enough to develop male feathering. It is not fully feathered out with its juvenile plumage.
Agreed.
I'm positive that bird is female though.
Rarely see those typical 'pullet' faces on Polish, but I do this time.
