    You could ask a kid “你几岁了?” For an adult, you can say 你多大了?And 您多大了?is a courteous way of asking an elderly or senior person’s age. Also when asking an old person’s age, you can say 您高寿?高 means high, and 寿 means age. Together 高寿 means your venerable age.

    你多大了,一般对不同年龄的人都可以这样问,例如从小孩到老人。也可以问你多少岁了,你多大年龄了。对于老年人为了表示尊敬,应该说您(不是你)今年高寿啊。
    你几岁了,一般只有问小孩的时候才用,因为‘几’表示的数量不是很多,不超过十个。
