well, it has to be atleast 6 months old to tell, but a year old is best to be certain. If it is a boy there will be two noticeable bumps just below the vent, these are the hemi-peni. On a male there will also be a very distinct V-shaped set of deeps pores above the vent. In females you can sometimes see very small pores but they will not secrete a waxy substance like the male. if you can post a pic of the vent i can take my best guess to you.
