Based on COPPA. The platform only allows users 13 and above to sign up to any platform app without parent consent. If your jurisdiction requires parental consent for users above this age you will need to obtain this through alternative means.
The definition of minors varies depending on where in the world you are based and which laws apply to your users, but minors are generally below 18 (South Africa) or below 13 (USA) years of age.
