    You may use the DateTime field from Quick Tools for capturing Date of Birth.

    We also have Birth date picker that can be added to your JotForm

    Please check the following demo form that might help you in achieving your requirement with calculating age in days.


    Please feel free to clone this JotForm to your account to see how it works. Hope this information helps. Let us know if you need any further assistance. We will be happy to help.
