To me it looks like you have a female just based on how it looks. Tarsal spurs are very prominent so you can’t miss them. Please take a pic of the back feet so we can know for sure.
Okay I will post pic of the back feet . I really hope it’s not female cause I already had one and she died recently so I really wanted a male and specifically asked the petstore twice if the chameleon is male and they said yes .

And she´s already I guess +6 months, so the first receptive phase will come in shortly. I would strongly suggest, just seeing the corner of your enclosure, to do a husbandry review here, so everything is perfect for her, otherwise you´ll suffer the same faith I´m afraid.
