Sexing black mollies

How do you tell male/females black mollies apart? One of my black mollies was sold to me to be male. He is larger and longer than the female. Lately I noticed he/she looked pregnant! She has a low slung belly and she looks squared. Is there a way to tell from the anal fin?
Thanks for your help!

Males have a more pointed anal fin and females have a more fan like fin.

These are on mollies, but it is the same for all live barriers

So the platys will be the same way when trying to tell male and female apart
