My guess would be Male also.
My rescued male leopard took a long time to get his concave plastron. Everything else looked Male, once he started to mature. Looked female for a long time, longer then my male I raised.

@maggie3fan Often if you hold the tortoise with its head up and tail down it will show more of its tail with more weight going to that rear area. I do that when I photo my tortoises for progressive tail shots to compare later when I finally know the sex. Always looking for things that may have shown up early that turns out to be unique for one sex at an earlier age!

Just a while ago I saw him on his back, he was not struggling at all and his tail was out...fat and short. Male...
