Default Male or female?

Title says it all really! Is the Axolotl pictured a boy or a girl. As a side note, this bump on my other axolotl's lip has appeared. It's not getting any bigger so I'm just waiting for it to go away, thinking it's probbaly just from where he's bumped into an ornament. But should I be worried/doing anything else?

Im not terribly experienced but based on what Ive learned from the web I believe thats a male. As for the lip Im sure he will be okay.

I would have thought that was a girl to be honest. Males have a very defined cloaca and that seems kind of small. Could you post a pic of the whole axii? Things like the length of the tail and shape of the head can help with telling if it's a boy or girl. Also how old is s/he?

Thank you for the replies! Here is a better photo of her (or maybe him lol?). As for age, I honestly have no idea, I bought him/her from a pet shop and they didn't have a clue about the age. All I'd say is definitely fully grown (which obviously doesnt give a maximum age, but does give a minimum).
