And the oldest child wears a red hat to distinguish himself from his twin, no?

If me and a sibling were both six what would stop one of us wearing a red hat and one of us wearing a different coloured hat or no hat at all?

In the riddle it says:
"OK, the last thing is that my oldest child wears a red hat."
Now, if you and your sibling were both 6, if your father said this, it doesn't make sense as there are two oldest children. This last statement points out that there is only one "oldest".

(4,3,3), (9,2,2), (9,4,1), (6,6,1), (12,3,1), (18,2,1), (36,1,1), (6,3,2)
Now, the hint is sum of the ages is being told and correct ages can't be guessed. So, the possible choices left are:
Now, the hint is oldest is wearing a Red hat. So, the only answer left is:
which is our answer.

- That is still not enough."
When Peter says "That is still not enough" in reply to Thomas's statement. He is assuming that a couple of them are twins(Which as profound as it may sound is just an assumption).
i still have my doubts for what made him conclude that they're twins, for, they don't have to be.
why cant they be a 9-4-1 or 2-3-6 or 4-3-3 (in case they are twins)?
