Wee know that Piccolo Junior was initially seen as an infant upon his first appearence but then he changed significantly in those 3 years... but then his development was decreasing significantly over time, to the point he didn't change in the 10 years after the Boo arc. Would he even age with time? Is this specific to Piccolo, since he's a reincarnation, or maybe all the Namekian warriors share this strange maturing?

As interesting as it is to think about, that's a question only Toriyama could speculate on.

Dende went from a child to a teen in 7 years. He kind of grew up with Gohan at the same pace. I think because Piccolo Jr. was a replica, he grew up faster.

Age, what a joke. Goku at 12 looks like Gohan at 4. Meanwhile Gohan at 9 looks older than Goten and Trunks at 14. Meanwhile Mirai Trunks at 14 looks twice older. Meanwhile Krillin went down 20cm in Super.

They wanted Piccolo Jr to fight teen Goku without looking too weird, so they made 3yo Piccolo look like a Namekian in his late teens. EZ.

That's not as weird as Piccolo Junior's siblings looking nothing like Namekians.
Referring to Tambourine and the likes? I did find that strange, as well. Even before they changed Piccolo's backstory from being a demon/devil to an alien from Namek, it is weird that the first children were dinosaur/lizard/demon-like.

I know that is one big topic of debate when it comes to Dragon Ball, but I think it's just another case of Toriyama winging it. Then he changed his mind later because he forgot about what he previously did or it just worked out better for the story.
