In kittens younger than about two weeks, it is often difficult to tell their sex. Even competent rescuers and vets can be fooled! A female kitten will have what looks like an upside-down exclamation mark, whereas a male will look more like a colon. Also, the male's urinary opening is lower than the female's and he will also have a little lump between his anus and this opening. This will later become his testicles. Another way to tell is gently squeeze the urinary opening. If the tip of the penis appears, there's your answer!
That's from http://www.kitten-rescue.com/kitten-res ... e%20kitten

Beachbaby, I am having a hard time determining the same thing. I just got a kitten 2 days ago and the ex-owner told me that it was a female but the more I try to figure it out for myself the more I think its a male. Let me know if you find a great answer for a definite determination.

Thanks
