Hi audra,
Google profiles originally had an option to display your manually entered birthday, but this wasn't the birthdate Google used to determine your age for age-restricted YouTube videos (or when Google+ was only accessible to people 18+). Although the birthdate option is still visible on legacy profiles, Google later removed it from Google profiles because of the confusion.

Providing an option for people to change their birthdate associated with their Google account, and providing an option to make your birthdate visible on your profile are popular requests, and Google is looking into this. Thanks for your patience and stay tuned!
