A little help determining sex?

Hey everyone, my panther chameleon is almost 3 months old now and I was hoping someone could help me determine its sex. When I first got my little buddy I was told that it was most likely a male. I've done my research in order to try and determine the sex myself, but I'm still not sure. What's odd is that sometimes it appears to have a hemipenal bulge and sometimes it doesn't. Here are some pics..I'd appreciate your guys' help!

If I was to take a go at it, I would say male, mainly for the markings and in one photo it looked like there was much more colour then a female would have at 3 months. Also a great way to tell the sex is by observing their pyjamas. Males tend to show their most vibrant colours once asleep. Young males will likely still have browns, tans in their sleeping colours, but you can also generally see blues, reds and greens too. See if he looks any different once asleep and take a photo!

I'm hoping for a male, but if it turns out to be a female then that'll be awesome too :) If you don't mind me asking, what made you conclude it's a male?
 
you look at there feet..no spurs....there features will be sharper and darker more masculine take a pic of a female and a male and compare you will see what I mean

Spurs are only for sexing veileds . Male veileds have spurs nd females do not...this however does not work for panthers because they don't have any spurs at all

He he has the slight taper to the tail that would indicate a male. That's why I say male
