Thumbs up Are my Jack Dempsey's MALE or FEMALE??

We have just added three JD's to our tank. They are only about 1.5"-2" long at the moment. Two look nearly identical, much darker and not as vibrant in colour spots etc. The third is a little smaller (different store so a little younger) and is super vibrant with blue specks all over the cheeks and his/her underbelly and mouth is red. The third also has a longer top fin that goes into a sharp point whereas (to me) the other two look shorter and not as pointy.

Here are some pics of the three. What do you think?
