You may be able to return him to the store you purchased him from or contact a local rescue. Storage bins can be converted into a cheap mouse house.  

I don't know for certain how Ace houses their mice. I've never seen mice at the ones near me. But I can say it is very common for pet stores to accidentally mix sexes, so it is definitely a possibility Ace could have too.

I've come to really love the little one, maybe I can convince my parents just to buy another cage for it IF it turns out to be male.
Do you know any experts that might be able to tell...? Like, not online ones.

If you can get the mouse to stand like perched on the edge of a good bowl or something, I believe the testicles should be relaxed in that position and you should be able to tell if it's a male or not.
I don't know if that's a 100% accurate test, though.
