In brief: No difference

Fetal alcohol syndrome (fas) affects both boys and girls.
Fas and alcohol related neurodevelopmental disorder (arnd) are caused by prenatal exposure to alcohol and result in cognitive, learning, emotional, social, and behavioral problems in both genders of children.

In brief: Equal opportunity

The metabolic break down products of alcohol that produce fetal alcohol effects or syndrome appear not to care what sex baby is.
The targets of cell growth in heart, brain, facial feature etc. All track more or less at the same pace in pregnancy for both genders.
