    How young he is than me.

    My birthday comes in the month of August. Tom's birthday comes at the end of the year in December. So you can estimate or calculate yourself "how young he is than me" or "how old Am I than Tom?"

    Please check.

    Re: How young he is than me.

    "how much younger he is" or "how much older am I?"
    Because you've already mentioned the relevant details in the previous sentence, there's no need to repeat who it's referring to with the "than me" and "than Tom".

    Re: How young he is than me.

    The question marks in both the above posts are incorrect.

    There should be a comma after 'December' instead of a full stop.

    See above.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
