New Beardie Owner

Hey guys Gf surprised me yesterday with a beautiful juvenile bearded Dragon after wanting one for over a year??. I know they need prober lighting as turtles do (150Gal Map turtle)? shocked at the the person who sold my Gf the Dragon said they only need a heat lamp. Correct me if I’m wrong but I would have thought UVB was needed as well to prevent metabolic bone Disease she got sold a zoo med starter kit already upgraded the lighting should turn up tomorrow and got plans for a self build enclosure. What I need help with is the sexing of my dragon and correct basking temps any help will be greatly appreciated

Please take the dragon and place on a table point the camera at the vent area w/ the tail in the air please --------- for a juvie you need basking temps 95-100 taken w/ a digital probe thermometer and NO coils for a UVB -------- you need a long tube fixture like a Zoo Med or Sunblaster or a Arcadia w/ a Reptisun 10.0 T 5 or Arcadia 12% bulb --- a 24" fixture for a 40 + gallon tank ----------- please get this ASAP - if the dragon has been w/ out UVB all this time it has started to develop MBD ---

This is Atlas, he's my 3 year male leatherback. i don't know whether to be worried as he has no femoral pores what so ever, not even small ones! i always thought they would come with age but he is getting a bit older now and i'm starting to worry. here are some photos of his lack of pores. if someone could let me know if this is healthy that would be greatly appreciated!!
