I don't know much about peafowl, but you could ask in the peafowl section. There are allot of knowledgeable peafowl people over there https://www.backyardchickens.com/f/51/peafowl

Hey everybody! I just purchased two peafowl that will be a year old in the spring. I was just wondering if they will display or even have a small train. Thanks so much!

Welcome to BYC! Glad you joined the flock. Peacocks and peahens will sometimes display when they are a year old. Peacocks can sometimes grow a train in when they are two years old but expect a full train when they are three years old. If you have questions on peafowl I or others in the peafowl section would be more than happy to help. What kind of peafowl do you have? If you don't know post a picture and I can help you try and identify it.

These are my Indian Blues. My male Colbolt is 4 years old in this photo. My hen Sage is behind his train, on the door.

I have one India Blue and one Pied. They are still quite nervous but hopefully they will settle down soon.
You'll love it when those two are 3 years old. Pied peacocks will sometimes have a nice mix of white train feathers along with Indian Blue train feathers. Fall of 2017 the males should have trains if not it will be the fall of 2018.
