15 People Whose Ages Are So Puzzling, Even Sherlock Holmes Can’t Guess Them

Sometimes, people in their thirties may look like they’re 13 years old. And conversely, teenagers’ appearances may trick you into thinking they’re way older than they really are. Looks can be deceiving, they say, and the heroes of our compilation prove this statement to be true.

We at Bright Side found a 16-year-old boy who looks like he’s 30, a pregnant woman with the face of a 5-year-old, and over 10 more people whose ages are so unrecognizable, even the greatest detective of all time couldn’t guess them correctly.

1. “Me, in eighth grade, 1983 — collar up because I was cool, even with those huge glasses.”

2. “A friend of mine during her confirmation ceremony at 14 years old — she looks like a 35-year-old secretary.”

3. “A pregnant 5-year-old?”

4. “Somehow, I looked like a sad middle-aged librarian when I was 12.”

5. “The face says 13, and the figure says 45-year-old construction worker.”

6. “Me (31) with my wife (32) and 4 our kids — people always ask if the kids are my siblings.”

7. “I’ve been in the Marines for 12 years as of yesterday, and I’m in my thirties.”

“This is my first month vs my most recent month in the Marines.”

8. “Me at 33, looking like a 16-year-old who just got their driver’s license”

“Just think. You’ll look 40 when you and your friends are all 80. A gift and a curse.”

9. “This is me when I was 16.”

10. “Is she 46 years old or 4.6 years old?”

11. “A picture of me from 2009 — I was 18.”

12. “All dressed up for my fifth-grade graduation...”

13. “16 or 60?”

“It’s amazing what a hairstyle can do because if you cover the bottom half of his face, he’s 16, but if you cover the top half, he’s 47 and twice divorced.” © Sq***Babies / Reddit

14. “A 13-year-old learning guitar or a 30-year-old rocker?”

15. “Me at 12 going on 30-year-old news anchor...”
