Gold Severum or a Red Spot Severum?

I bought a 3 inch Gold Sev from the local fish store. It is about as round as a baseball. It is yellow with a red bottom fin. I was recenly looking at it, and it is starting to have red marks on the gills. I'm not sure what the "designs" are on the head, but there are a couple red marks on the body. I don't know if the colors come in later after they mature or what. Do you think it could possibly be a red spot sev that is just now developing the red? There are other sevs in the store that are a much deeper yellow color. What do you think?

Impossible to speculate without a picture.

10g Fry / Hospital / QT tank (as needed)

75g Saltwater Reef, Ocellaris Clownfish, Lyretail Antias (baby), Lemon damsel, Longtail Fairy Wrasse, purple dottyback, snails, crabs and a few LPS corals.

220g Still sitting empty (come on Lottery I need the numbers to come up!)

I can't get a good picture because he never stays still. But if you look by the gills and on the lower side of the body, you can see the red. So I don't know if it's a gold severum with red on its side. Or a red spot sev that haven't developed the color yet. Like I said the picture isn't good but you can roughly see the red on the gills and side.

It looks like a gold severum to me.

Red severums are usually a lot more orange than that.
