3b or c or whatever is only indicative of curl size (not texture/softness) and yours looks a bit smaller than sharpie size in the first pic. I thought you were unsure of your curl size due to the "?" in your first post. Anyway if you already know, please ignore my suggestion that it looks 3c.
(I don't think 3c hair necessarily sticks up when short but I may be wrong.)
