Another way of looking at it: Ezra was born on the day Palpatine proclaimed himself emperor so Ezra is only 2 days older than Luke & Leia.
That's what I thought. We've seen Leia, and she was about 15 when she first appeared.
The only reasoning they could make is that it was a flashback on how Obi-Wan has overlooked Luke since he was a kid but if so it wasn't made clear.
