I am having a similar issue reported in this question: Age not updating on profile.

I had a birthday several months ago, but my Stack Overflow profile still says the younger age.

This seems to be a bug, but please let me know if I am missing something.

    In other words, you're not aging. Now that's a breakthrough! :)

    @Lucifer This question is not Stack Overflow only. Because his age is 26 in his all profiles.

    I swear, SE doesn't handle dates well, they should hire Skeet for dealing with obscure dates! Commented Apr 30, 2013 at 4:19

This is not a bug. The correct birth date format is YYYY/MM/DD, whereas I incorrectly entered it in the wrong format. The age now shows correctly.

It would be nice if there was something explaining the expected format though where you enter your birthday for your profile.

    This is why we use standards, like ISO 8601. Commented Apr 30, 2013 at 13:11
