How old is your iguana? With most, they are difficult to sex until they are fully grown. However, if I were you I would check for femoral pores. They are pores in certain places on the iguana where males don’t have them. Look it up for more info. I can’t really see too well in the photo. Sorry.

Very late reply but...your iggy is a boy. Not that hard to tell once they reach 12" to 18". His spikes on his neck are taller, his jowls are forming and the easiest way to tell are by the femoral pores on the underside of their hind legs. Males have much larger ones than females. In fact, it’s a bit difficult to even notice them on females. Males will also develop two bulges at the vent area.
