Nope. The answer is 'that man's father'.

Oki I was staring at Reza's answer today earlier and could not figure a bit what his answer meant. I retried the riddle, came up with an answer, and realized I was about to write the exact same answer (yea I'm slow at times).

How is "that man's father" the answer?

If I am 'that man's father', then 'my father's son' is me. It can't be someone else because 'brothers or sisters, I have none', so I am an only child.

Lol that's what Reza and I meant. The narrator of the riddle is "that man's father."

It doesn't answer the riddle to say it's the narrator because that doesn't make any connection with the people mentioned in the riddle.

A boy is 4 years old. His younger brother is half his age. How old is the younger brother when the older one is 100 years old?

Answer: 98 (not 50!)
