Electric blues can be tough to tell compared to their wild colored counterparts. Since coloration cues are off the table I'm basing it off fin shape shaping and size. It lacks the longer dorsal fin rays typical of males and has shorter ventral fins. I would say female.

Head shape, bottom fin, gill/fin shape, fin color details

Arrow head shape + slightly black bottom pair of fin + sharp fin + not to round body shape + [male are (usually) more energitic-depending on the enviroment] + coloration pattern
I would love to show u pictures of my male one to demonstrate this aspects but it doesn't allow me to add pictures idk why

Also, looks like you have a young ram
