Hi , I just started learning French ,can you tell me if this is correct?

I think in informal conversations we say like -

Il est pas jeune 

instead of the more formal and more 'grammatically correct' one:

Il n'est pas jeune!

Is it correct !? Responde Sil vous Plait!

Correct. Il est pas jeune is, however not strictly correct, even though used and heard often in colloquial French.
