 Trouble sexing...Things just dont follow the rules

Ive got three leo’s, one of the three has laid eggs.
Now Im having bit of problem sexing them.The one we thought was female has large pores and small hemipenal bulges but is the smallest of the three, even its head is smaller.I thought males were the blocker and larger.

The other two are much bigger with bigger heads but one has very tiny pores and basically I cants see any hemipenal bulges.So I must assume a female.

But the third is the enigma, large pores like a male and yet no bulges at all.BUT this one has a deformed tail that is squished up against the vent so is it possible the bulges are just not visible because of this deformity or because its only about 8 mnths old and hasnt grown any yet???
