“Children” or “Men” in 2 Kings 2:23?

"And he went up from thence unto Bethel: and as he was going up by the way, there came forth little children out of the city, and mocked him, and said unto him, Go up, thou bald head; go up, thou bald head." (2 Kings 2:23, KJV)

“נער“ could mean “child.” The NASB translates “נער” as “lad” in Genesis 21:12, 17, 18, 19, 20, 22:5, 12, 43:8, and 44:22.
