the comb size and color, and the flowing of the feathers on his topknot and his tail to me indicate a rooster, you should either get an egg or a crow at that age after they feel more comfortable.

Yep, cockerel... Comb, wattles, he has "streamers", cockerel feathers that flow from the top of the crest towards his back; the thicker feathering around his hackles is where those streamers head to ;)

And he holds his head up very high; a rooster trait.
