Feel the head and cheeks. If it feels like sandpaper, it's a male. You may not be able to feel this until spring time though. A female koi will feel slippery during breeding season.

also most males are longer and more slender and the females carry eggs and they wil have a "bulge" near there stomach regon

Koi (not Coy) Carp are big pond fish, they differ from Goldfish by having barbels (whiskers) around the mouth. If the fish has those, then it's a Koi and not a Goldfish. The smallest varieties of Koi still get over 24", big ol'fish they are!
