How big/old is it? As stated previously, mainganos are born blue and johs are yellow and males turn blue when they becomes sexually mature.
If it's still very young and not sexually mature it's a maingano.

they are both about 2.5 inches one of them turned very dark for about a fortnight and now has returned to his lighter blue colour I think because I removed the bumblebee.
