Males of all species have nipples. If there is a "flap" between them, it is probably male. Perhaps their testicles just have not descended yet.
What is underneath the tails? If there is no "slit" below then anus, they are probably male.
There are multiple factors to consider when determining gender……I find it best to wait until the lambs are a bit older, so the lamb itself can decide it’s own gender rather than you assigning it. At about 6 months old, if you listen closely you’ll also be able to determine the lambs’ preferred pronoun(s).
It amazes me how people will not spend the time or money to purchase books to research a subject but will jump on a forum and ask a newbie question. Maybe you shouldn't be raising sheep? The last place to look for correct data is a forum. A forum is primarily nothing but a bunch of opinions. Spend $20 bucks and buy a book. What are you going to do when you have a real problem(like a malpresentation at 3am) post on a forum? Sorry your offended. Raising animals is hard you will make mistakes. If you are serious build a library.
My rant is done. You all have my permission to hate me.
