Der kursive Zusatz ist komplett entbehrlich: "- boy" kann u. sollte schlicht gestrichen werden!

Darüber hinaus:

1) Macmillan bezeichnet youngster in der Bedeutung Kind/Jugendlicher als "old-fashioned" - steht damit allerdings allein.

2) Die Bedeutung von youngster in Bezug auf Tiere (Junges, Fohlen...) und die militärischen Bedeutungen fehlen bisher völlig in LEO

"Youngster" applies to either or both sexes. The connotation is fairly friendly rather than formal. For example if children are making a lot of noise playing in the garden, the parents might say something like "as long as the youngsters are happy..."

If the youngster is male then ,,der Junge" or more colloquialy ,,der Bursche" or ,,der Bube" are also given in my old Langenscheidt.

I don't agree with Macmillan that the expression "youngster" is old-fashioned -the Concise Oxford English doesn't indicate so. It all depends on your point of view and your age. "Youngster" is in regular use by middle class, middle aged and educated people. In formal language either "young people" or, for males, "youth" (as in a youth/the youths)is more likely to be used.
