UPDATE: so he's grown a lot since this thread started. And his comb is starting to get bigger and bigger and turning red. I'm pretty sure he's a roo...but anyone else??

I think it's still up in the air.. I don't think that combs/waddles are a very good sex indicator because waddles on hens can get really big too.
