Your tort is obviously very young but I can't say for sure .
Depends on species and rates of growth do vary.
Did they not tell you when you got him/her?
I believe female tails are shorter and wider than males but I think it's too young to say for sure what sex it is at the moment.
My tort was at least 3/4 (guesstimate)when he showed me he was male.

.75-1.5 years old and at this point too young to sex visually. You would have to get an endoscopy which is very expensive.

I'm going to disagree with Maggie, and agree with Blastoise. You've. got a little baby there
