From what I can make out from the pictures, both are males. To be sure, try to provide clearer images (if possible).

Sexing by the presence the "tooths" on the basal middle lamella

Basal middle lamella are located near the point where the two pectine meets:

Refer to the arrows below for the location of basal middle lamella.

* Depending on the magnification of your lens, sexing via the above method maybe feasible as early as 2.instar.
