Hello, I just got a baby veiled chameleon from a pet shop and the sales person didn't even know its sex!

I want to know if my baby is female or male!

is there any way I can easily figure it out by looking at my chameleon?

the male will have a little spur sticking out at the bottom of his back foot ...if its a female no spur.

And it's not really going to look like a spur, but a little bump. It will look like this-

having a hard time identifying the sex for my cham as well..
I've thought he was a little dude for about 8 months now.. have done a ton of research and have seen what other's post I'm just very unsure still..honestly a straight answer would set me right. If Zepplin is a female, I need to read more and prepare myself for her to possibly lay eggs.
Things that make me doubt :
-The colors are not as vibrant as what others suggest for males..
-Zepplin does have the little bump (genitalia bump) some claim as male parts..
-Zepplin's veil is super triangular in shape on his head..
-When I first tried to tell if Zepplin was a male or female after I first got him, I could have swore I saw spurs on the back feet! That's the only reason I figured Zepplin was male in the past. Now when I look I can't tell if guess..
Any help?! Just really want to clear this up lol.It would be much appreciated!
Okay, done with rant!
Xoxo
