Can you tell the gender of dorsigera yet?

It's been a few months since I posted pics of my dorsigera (possibly curviceps?) and it was too young to sex. I was wondering if it's a little more apparent now?
The fish has two distinct spots on the dorsal, not smudged at all, and the fins are mainly yellow with a bit of sky blue sprinkles here and there. Female maybe?

these fish are very hard to sex, but i can tell u that the males are heavier set and have a larger dorsal fin. most if not all markings are the same from male to female and they both change there colors with mood.
