Baby OB peacock male/female?

This is my baby OB peacock - he's about 1.5" and looks to me like a male. I wish I knew who his parents are.....I think the mom is an albino eureka red, but his father could be anyone! He's coloring up nicely and looking pretty.

Any way to tell who the dad is? I have an OB peacock in the tank, a tangerine peacock, a blue empress, a pheniculus, a fryeri, a eureka red, an albino eureka red and a couple of dolphins. Any way to ever tell? Of a few "litters" only 3 babies survived, 1- is all yellow 1- is brown just starting to color up with a bit of red (or maybe will be female) and the 3rd is the above OB....any clue?
Hard to tell. Looks small and fins are not extended out but i think it is a little male. Try catching another pic with its dorsal fin perked up.
i would say male also as the fins look pointed to me
