Is he in danger because of where he is? Because he would be in danger no matter where he is as long as his mother is there? Or if he didn't physically see her, would he still be in danger?

Is he in danger of being physically hurt? death?

Is his mother physically near him when he sees her, or does he see her in a picture/movie/tv?

Because he would be in danger no matter where he is as long as his mother is there? Location is not relevant, just that they met

Or if he didn't physically see her, would he still be in danger? perhaps

Is he in danger of being physically hurt? death?
death is closest, but not entirely accurate

Is his mother physically near him when he sees her Yes, or does he see her in a picture/movie/tv? No

Is he in danger of being attacked? Some natural force? Some accident that will occur? No Yes No

Is a crime being committed? No

Is this a time-travel paradox? Right on the head!

SPOILER: The young man is Marty McFly from the 1985 movie "Back to the Future." He and his mother meet, and she falls in love with him, causing her not to meet Marty's father, causing Marty to be in danger of never existing ... but she eventually does, of course.
