no toddlers cant see cloaked ships who's only detection vulnerability is under developed eye sights, or ghosts of Christmas past.
humans hear in the same range.
why do we only deny political ignorance, everything else gets a free pass.
The older age group likely had trouble hearing the Mosquito because as we age, our ability to hear high-pitched frequencies wanes. This process is called presbycusis, the onset of which is sometimes observable in people as young as 18. Presbycusis happens as a result of the cells in our ears aging naturally, so it’s nothing to be alarmed by. Presbycusis is very different than noise-induced hearing loss, which happens as a result of acute or sustained exposure to very loud noises. When you’re at a very loud concert, for example, the hair cells in your ear can become over-stimulated. The body responds by sending oxygen to this region of the ear, leading to oxidative cell death. Curiously, noise-induced hearing loss usually makes it harder to hear lower frequencies, such as those between three kHz and six kHz, whereas presbycusis gradually erodes our ability to hear higher frequency sounds in general.

He never says he sees something if it isn't there or if he doesn't hear it. Never once.
now and then he'll look at a spot in the sky and say "I see Airplane" and sometimes it will be a clear blue sky with nothing in it, no sound either.
