Some people have all the luck in the world when it comes to looking far younger than they really are. While others have the misfortune of inheriting certain genetic traits that make them look a lot older. It’s often disconcerting to see a person whose age you can’t determine, and it turns into a guessing game, whether they’re actually 13 or 30.
There’s an entire community on Reddit called ‘13 or 30’ that is dedicated to people who “look multiple ages”, and is chock full of pictures that will befuddle and confuse you, and have you raising your eyebrows. Here’s an awesome list of the best pictures the subreddit has to offer, so grab your friends and start a guessing game. Upvote your faves, write us a comment with your thoughts and remember to keep on scrolling.

“Child” Filmed Smoking At Football Match Is Actually 36
My mom and I are two people who look way younger than we really are, and I can tell you that life can get pretty interesting. We’re used to fun little surprises like getting asked for our ID when buying a newspaper that has a free DVD that is meant for teenagers aged 12 and above, for example. Not to mention that we look like brother and sister whenever we’re walking side by side. And don’t even get me started on how many times we’ve been mistaken for an incredibly young couple when we’ve taken my sisters to the playground.

The Guardian writes that Dutch scientists are close to answering the question of why some people look younger than others. Rotterdam scientists published a paper in 2016, stating that they found a gene that affects how old individuals appear. When this particular gene has mutations, people look about two years older than they are.

Professor Manfred Kayser, an expert in forensic molecular biology at the Erasmus Medical Center in Rotterdam, had this to say to the media: “This is the first gene we have found for perceived age, and this single gene has an effect of two years.

However, it’s not all down to genetics. Lifestyle is important as well when it comes to different aging rates. Too much sunlight and smoking, for example, have negative effects and can make you look older.
