Question 6/7 month cockatiel shows both male and female breeding behaviours?

Hello! I recently got a new tiel and now that it's growing up it's confusing me loads. I noticed that he "relieves himself" on objects like a male cockatiel would do and he'sstarting to sing too and is really really attention seeking and noisy, but for some reason he shows some female behaviours? For example he puts his butt up when he's with my mother like a female would do! Can someone help me with this?

If you need some photos of him just ask me and I'll send them right away!

Sometimes you have to hurry up and wait.

You want my guess I would say boy.

Some birds display both male and female behaviors, so it's not really good at determining if your bird is male or female. In most cockatiel mutations you can tell the gender of your bird after he molts for the first time.
