    There is a workaround to your goal, and that is by comparing the Birth Date value to a fixed date 13 years ago.

    First off, you need to replace your Birthday Picker field with a DateTime one. You can find the DateTime field under the Power Tools section:

    Note: Disable time in this field by untoggling the "Allow Time" button found in the toolbar while the said field is on focus.

    Next, create a condition for your form that will hide the Register button and will display a (custom html) error message if the birth date entered is prior to your (13 yr old) exact date.


    To learn more about this, feel free to clone this sample form and inspect the conditions.
