It is most likely that that one is the dominant male, in regards to whether the others are female or subdominant males only time or venting will tell.

Even the marks don't determine sex all the time. From my experience and the local bloodline of labs I see around here the black tends to be male but I've seen other lines where the females have AMAZING black fins. Venting and proven breedings is the only way to be 100% sure.
