Default JS validation on the drop-down menus

<script language="javascript">

Date.prototype.getDiff = function(date, interval){
  if (typeof date == "string"){
     date = new Date(date);
  if (isNaN(date) || !(date instanceof Date)){
     return NaN; 
  if (typeof interval == "undefined") interval = "ms"; 
  var diff = this - date;

       case "d": 
        diff = diff/(1000*60*60*24); break;

        infant = true;

I am having a problem with this code. I am looking to have JS validation on the drop-down menus like I said before.
I am trying to put the values of the drop-down menus into a textbox then validate it.
Although, i am experiancing problems. How can i do this? I am trying to check if the date of birth is MORE than two years ago
(i.e. if the infant is older than 2years old). If they are then dont submit the form and show pop-up (ALERT). Else, submit form to next page.
