Did you buy a "pair" or did you buy 2 fish you hoped were a breeding pair? From the pics, these appear to be very young fish but pictures can be deceiving....

It's very hard to tell; only way to know for sure is when they lay eggs - the ovipositor of the female is larger than the male's organ. I've had several breeding pairs and I can never tell the male from the female for sure,

Unfortunately, when they are small, there's no clear cut way to tell. As stated above, the only way today to know for sure is to watch them spawn.
That said, you may want to read through the following thread Wigglers At Last!!!!!

That was an ongoing conversation by both hobbyist and pro Angel breeders and contains just about everything you need to know to breed and raise Angelfish.

Read the thread.
For breeding, it's not about size but it is about age.
