Hey there just trying to find out what gender my German blue ram is, I’ve tried comparing my fish to photos online but I just can’t tell weather it’s a male or female.
Thank you

Probably a female, but with all the domestic modification of fins and colors it's hard to be 100% sure.

Your fish, to me, appears to be a merry mix of domestic strains. It has somewhat longer fins than the typical Ram, possibly a mix of the long-fin "butterfly" strain mixed with standard size. It also appears to be a mix of 2 or more domestic color strains To me it appears to be a mix of domestic (German) blue and neon. Even the body is deeper than the typical Ram. Maybe it has some 'baloon' strain, too? I'm always amazed at the different strain breeders have produced from wild Rams.
