Impossible to say. Dwarf hamster don't age the same way as Syrians do.

Our first Robo Gordon didn't start to look "old" until he was 20+ months old.

Samuel is very cute. Can't you find out from where you got him from? Is he from a petshop? They are usually around 2 months old when they arrive at the petshops.

The age range I was given was 6-8 months or a year (from the pet store employee). Wish I knew his age though.

It's difficult to tell from the photo I'm afraid. Sometimes there are signs which can suggest that a hamster is still quite young or perhaps is approaching older age, it can be very difficult to know for sure and I've had hamsters that are approaching two that still look like they could pass for Young Stock in a show (Young Stock is Under 16 weeks).

Hamsters in pet shops are often about 5-10 weeks old when they're available for general sale but that is dependant on store policy. Sometimes you might find older hamsters that have been made available for adoption and then the ages given are quite often just a guess.
