Does My Goldfish Have Eggs Or Dropsy?

I was watching my goldfish one day and my Red Ryukin "Thomas" looked odd. I looked more carefully and saw that his belly was slightly swollen, I was a little alarmed and started researching. He didn't seem to have any of the symptoms of dropsy but then I considered that my so called boy fish could be a girl. If my fish does have eggs what do I do?

I have a male goldfish in there and yes I am sure it is a male because it has white tubercles on its gills.

P.S., P.S.
OMG, My other fish Newton has the same thing!

(Newton is the Calico Ryukin and Thomas is the Red Ryukin)

You need a shot from the side and one from slightly below if you can get it. I can't tell. They look like chubby little fancies from here except your calico one looks a bit off...though it's so smeared it's impossible to tell. Can't see the bellies from the right angle to tell you anything else. =)

Turning on the Aquarium lamp in the morning is MY cup of coffee.
