Jalyn,
Just going to let you know I am moving your post into the Trees and Shrubs section, think you'll get a better response into there...

Welcome to The Garden Helper's Forum by the way,
we're very glad you found us... [thumb] [wavey]

While both sexes will flower, only females will produce berries. That is pretty much the only way to tell the difference, unless you have a degree in botany. It is possible you have all male plants. If purchased at a nursery, they should already have them separated into groups by sexs. It can take a few years for new hollies to start bearing berries.
