I am setting up a communal setup soon and I need to know what instar my jacksoni is

It was about an inch long (head to end of tail) when I first got it, it has molted twice since then, the time between the 1st and 2nd molt was under 2 months.

My guess it is 5th instar?

Here are 2 pics of it next to a quarter, sorry my camera phone sucks :/

I wanna say its body is about an 1 1/4 inch and the tail itself is roughly an inch?




Here is a pic of it when I first got it:


2 weeks later it molted:


For those who can gauge size reference with objects :p

Thanks

They wont get the bulbs untill they reach full grown state, trust me it looks freaky when they go from slim to full blubish in 1 molt..
