Basically, there is no difference between them. The first one is Mandarin and the second one is Cantonese.

Nearly same. If strictly, personally I would feel the second one is used for asking a child generally. 

Asking Age in Chinese

You can see this dialogue to know the usage of "how old are you" in Chinese.

Also, you can join the wechat group: jenniferzhu6 to learn Chinese everyone with other Chinese learners.
