If they have blue on the side of their bellies, then they are male

Even females can have blue (although usually less than males).
The surefire way to determine sex in Sceloporus lizards is to check under the tail. In males, there are two large scales at the base of the tail, just below the cloaca. In the females, the scales at the base of the tail are all uniform in size.

Heres an easier way to tell what RedGator said, in male lizards their are enlarged post anal scales near the tail hind area. In a female their arn’t any. Please post if your lizard is a boy or girl please.

If they have two large scales right under their vent/butt, then its a male, even if its a young one this is how you find out the gender

It doesn’t matter what age.
