I may be wrong but I feel the point about the birthdays was that they'd all been "away at sea" so long that such native matters had quite escaped their thoughts!
Yes, it does seem unlikely that they wouldn't remember their own birthdays (let along the newest arrival!)
As for Roger being 'no longer the youngest' - AR was fairly upfront about this being a device: the awareness and limited inclusion of a younger sibling allows Roger a degree of autonomy, discovery and status within the group that may have seemed improbable for a youngest sibling.
