Is this a hermaphrodite bud

Take a close look at the bud. I can’t tell if it is normal to have those green looking elongated things. The bud is really
tight so I don’t know if they are leaves or bananas. Help!

If it looks like a calyx with a pistil coming out of it, it is certainly a female flower. If it looks like a banana, a pouch – almost like a miniature little green melon, or almost like the tip of a skinny yellow chili pepper and without any sign of the pistil hair coming out the tip, it may be a hermaphrodite.
