For example:

Who looks more younger in this image, me or you?

  • Some times, more can be used with adjectives that normally have the -er suffix, for changing the emphasis/ subtle difference in sense. So, it would fine to say "Who looks more young in this image, me or you?" -- but not both * more younger.

  • more younger equals to younger-er which is not correct. The same way Best-est or Better-er are not correct Aug 21 '15 at 10:55
  • Sorry, Kris, but I don't see any subtle difference using more young. Younger means the same thing here, and is not awkward. Aug 21 '15 at 13:56

No, 'younger' already has the meaning of 'more young'. The phrase 'more younger' would mean 'more more young'.

If there are two people in the photo you can say,

Who looks younger, me or you?

If there are more than two people, you say,

Who looks youngest?

  • There's a subtle difference between saying "younger" and "more young" though. See also my comment at OP.
