If you have never seen them too small to sex then what are you talking about?

I'm talking about the fish maturing to the point of it being able to be sexed....
If the fish is too small to sex and the rounded fin changes into a pointy fin, then you obviously have a male. The whole premise of a fish being too small to sex is that the sexual dimorphic characteristics have not developed yet.

But I doubt the fish is too small to sex.

A picture is worth a thousand words, which we may have reached here.

You know what though, those pictures aren't very good and I can't a picture of his fin fanned out. It actually looks like it's starting to square off a little so I think it's a young male...

At what size does it become more obvious? 3 inches long total length?
