They are approximately three months old now and I already know I have one rooster. I’m having trouble with these two because I’m not used to the non bearded. I can sex bearded just fine because that’s what I’ve worked with. I’m suspecting they are both roosters and if that’s the case they’re going to have to go on the list of roosters that I’m going to sell...

They're both super beautiful. I have my own much younger silkies i am going to post, so im not much help.

Are the comb/wattle colors typical for the white/black birds?

I’ve never had a black one so the all black doesn’t help me. But the comb on the white one looks similar to my bearded white silkie.

My totally inexperienced hunch, just based on staring at silkie pics, is the white is Male, due to posture and Crest shape, and that black is female for the same reasons. Let's hope someone who actually knows responds!
