I guessed 35 but I do think he could be 14. Some African American teens in the states look as if they are middle aged. I do think some of African descent age much faster.

I guess he's in his late 20s or early 30s, it might be interesting to see just how old his 'mother' looks.

He doesn't look 14. I've come across a couple of cases like this. Working in a children's home in the late 90s, there was a Nigerian refugee who had arrived in the UK in a lorry. She was taken into the care of the local authority, although she had a couple of relatives in the UK. The girl was said to be 15 and she was taking GCSEs at a local school and doing amazingly well: she passed lots of them with high grades. Turned out she was 23 and had a degree in English from a Nigerian university!

Then there was the lad in a year 9 class, aged 14, who was very tall, had a deep voice and a stubbly chin by late afternoon! He was 22!! From Somalia, I think.

Apparently the parents have proved he is 14 years old.
