Default onions and leeks question

I have lost the labels from both onion and leek seedlings
which are about 6" high.

Is there any way that I differentiate between them at this stage

TIA .............................. Leslie

The leek leaves will look much more V-shaped than the onions,
and the plants themselves will look somewhat flattened. Onion
leaves are much more rounded.

You may even be able to see some difference in color; leeks
will be a slightly bluer shade of green.
