Well, it isn't the easiest thing to do. Males will get little white bumps on their gills, called tubercles or breeding stars. This is a great pic of tubercles/breeding stars.

They will also start chasing the female, but this isn't always a good sign because they have been known to chase other males in the absence of a female.

But, when gf aren't in breeding season, you can't tell at all.

We most of us just accept our little babies as androgynous critters until they can prove us otherwise.
