He was a teenager, even though it had been years since he had turned 13

Anything to do with having a birthday on February 29? Or the "1 year = 7 dog years" idea? Anything to do with Luke Perry being nearly a decade older than the character he played on 90210? Some other actor in this same situation?

He = H? A? M?
He turned 13 = "he had his thirteenth birthday"?
Is he simply 19, since ~6 years have passed since his 13th birthday?
Could "years" equate to decades in this case?

Is he a fictional character? In a long-running comic strip? Cartoon? Other TV show?

Does it have anything to do with a biological anomaly?

In order for him to qualify as a "teenager", do we need to refer to a specific sense of the word? One which is not just "a person between the ages of 13 and 19"?

If I saw this guy, would I immediately say "There goes a teenager"? or is there a relevant context in which he passes as one?

***Spoiler**

The news stories were talking about how Henry Allingham would be a teenager again. He just turned 113 years old.
