At what age do young Mali's start to show their color?

I have two young Mali's, probably around 6 months old, that are doing well after a long time getting acclimated. They are just now back up to the weight they supposedly were from the seller.I have had them for two months now. They eat well and sleep alot, the temps and hides are just as called for, along with UVB light. Both have just finished shedding, and I'm am wondering when they will start to show their final colors? Supposedly one is a male and the other smaller one a female, but the femoral pores look the same to me. I've tried to post pictures here but always get an error message "can't 'get'", rather frustrating!They seem very slow growing, my tortoises grow faster! My Skink grew faster! Are they always so slow growing?
Thanks,
Beth
