It would be helpful to have a closer picture of the cere but from what I can see it looks to be an even pinkish-purple which indicates male.

How large is the cage you have him in?
I would suggest you replace the wooden dowel perches with natural wood perches of varying diameters as explained in this link:
Essentials to a Great Cage

Best wishes!

Thanks for the Idea. I do have some money left, but my biggest problem with that is, he is super young and I don't want to start hand training for a couple more weeks, how do I get him so I can change the perches without him having a fit? https://gyazo.com/76eb2b77b84d301292e999469c34aade also, i know its not the best cage and the fancy tops are not good, but its all the petstore had, and I plan on getting one that is like 75 dollars within a couple months.

Your budgie needs a cage that is a minimum of 18" x 18" x 18" for one budgie but bigger is always better as long as the spacing between the bars is no more than 1/2".
The cage your budgie is in currently will be fine for a few months, but you will want to change out the perches as mentioned.

You can get a 30" long x 18" wide x 18" high cage which would be a nice size for very little money.

If you are willing to spend more, this cage would be excellent (I have several of these myself)

https://www.chewy.com/prevue-pet-pro...iron/dp/133569

You can switch out the perch(es) in the cage by simply moving very slowly and carefully and talking reassuringly to your budgie the entire time you have your hand in the cage.

As you seem to be concerned about money, you definitely need to set up an emergency fund for your budgie.
If he becomes ill or injured you need to have the necessary financial means available to ensure he gets the Avian Vet care required.

Be Prepared for Veterinary Care Expense

Avian First Aid

I also recommend you do the necessary research to find an Avian Vet now so you'll know who to call if there is ever an emergency situation. It is very important to be prepared.

Handsome guy. He will do fine for now in the cage you have for him.
He should tame easily, but take your time now and get him to simply trust you. Talk to him alot and provide background noise...makes them feel relaxed with there are sounds in the room.
Good luck.
