Default only do HTML/ASP when JS variable = true

How do i only run this JavaScript validation check if a JavaScript variable = true (infant = true;)

function checkBirthday(obj)
    if( !/^(\d{1,2})\/(\d{1,2})\/(\d{4})$/.test(obj.value) ) {
        alert( "Invalid date supplied - must be format DD/MM/YYYY" );

    var d = new Date();
    var d2 = new Date(RegExp.$3, RegExp.$2, RegExp.$1);

    var diff = d.getDiff(d2, "y")
    if( isNaN(diff) ) {
        alert( "Invalid date supplied" );
    else if( diff < 2 ) {
        alert( "This IS an INFANT \n they are younger that 2" );
        infant = true;

    else if( diff > 2 ) {
        alert( "This is NOT an INFANT \n they are older that 2" );
        infant = false;
        document.form.birthday.value = "";

<img src="g_toolbar_flights.gif" onClick="javascript: checkRetdt(document.form.retdt);" onMouseOver='style.cursor="hand"'>
