Due to the scientific law that states that matter cannot be created nor destroyed, it is extremely likely that all of the stars in our universe were formed from older stars that had released some or all of their matter.

According to the semi Conservative mode proposed by Watson and Crick, each strand of the two double helices formed would have one old and one new strand

How the stars sizes classify it depends on what?

Gigantic clouds of gas and dust left behind by old, massive stars slowly compress into potential new stars. Large stars are formed in stellar nebulae like small stars; they just require extra mass. Towards the end of their lives many stars turn into giants or even supergiants. That depends on the initial mass of the stars and on the progress of the nuclear fusion reactions in the stars.

In general how old are stars?

A typical star has an age of several billion years. Some stars have formed more recently, and are only a few million years old - or even a fraction of a million years, since new stars continue forming all the time. The oldest stars are just a bit younger than the "age" of the Universe (the time since the Big Bang) - which is currently estimated at 13.8 billion years.

How old are the youngest stars?

The age of individual stars can be as varied as the ages of individual human beings. The Sun (or the Star in the Sol system) is estimated at roughly six billion years old. It is thought there are stars that are as young as one billion, and others being currently formed.
