I would say that he would have been no older than twenty, according to my understanding of marriage customs of the time, plus the fact of his later being able to destroy the temple of Dagon (although with God's help) after having already judged Israel for twenty years. 

(My understanding is that one rabbinic authority even went so far as saying that any male remaining unmarried after his twentieth year was cursed by God Himself.)
