How old, if known, and/or how big is s/he? Check out this link, to give you an idea: http://www.axolotl.org/biology.htm

The man at the pet shop didn't say how old it was. It's about 14 cm's in length from nose to tail.Click the image to open in full size.

14 cm is probably too small to sex very well by looking at the cloaca. In a few weeks it will be larger or stay the same. It if grows largeish and becomes what arlove_animal says, a "ball sack" its an axolotl man.
