Blue Jaw Trigger (male or female???)

With everything I have read, blue jaw females do not have the blue jaw and some may or may not have the yellow lined fins. I got a Blue Jaw and I got her as a female, but now im not so sure. take a look.

I know its kinda poor quality, but it kinda has a light blue color and a slight blue jaw and you can see where it has a slight yellow linning around its fins.

Im so confused. Please help me out.

really hard to tell, but if I had to guess I'd say it's a male. I've had a very lightly colored male before as well. females will have more of a red lining in lieu of yellow, typically.
Me fail english? That's unpossible!

I think you've got two males as well. The yellow fins make me think so.
If you can't spell it, you probably won't be able to keep it alive...

Unless you don't want to keep it alive.

It's so hard to tell though because the one I thought was a female is quite young and I dont know if it may lose the yellow coloring as it grows, but it has a blue coloration like a female. The males have an olive green color. The one I thought was a female also has the blue jaw, but its really faint. Does anyone know if the females change colors as they grow? or am I really keeping to males?
