Possible pied male?

Hello, I was reading a post on this page saying that it is possible to sex young cockatiels who are pied due to their cheeks.

I have attached a few pictures, there seem to be yellow streaks going through the cheeks, so therefore, can it be determined that this is a male?
The breeder (Marc Marrone) also told me that this is a male. What do you guys think?

The yellow streaks, rather than grey, would indicate a male I believe. That's about the only thing I know about pieds.

I agree. Although many people say that pieds can't be visually sexed, a woman who I consider an expert on cockatiels agrees with the above. I tried to look for some photos she had showing the differences but she must have removed them.

Thank You! I think I can be sure he is a male now! Very excited to get him.

Well, I would say male. I never want to say for sure. LOL. But from what I've read, yes.
