In case you missed it, earlier this week KJ Apa and his Riverdale bro Cole Sprouse hilariously trolled each other on Instagram about how young the other looked when they were teenagers. For context, the actors play 17/18-year-old Archie Andrews and Jughead Jones whereas, in reality, they're both in their 20s.

It all started when KJ shared a side-by-side comparison of him and Cole at 17, along with a hilarious caption which reads, "Man… I would have absolutely crushed you at age 17. Crushed. @colesprouse".

While he might have a point about baby-face Cole, Sprouse quickly clapped back with a gloriously sassy comment and RIP us.

"You wouldn't even have survived the weight of my wallet bitch", Cole wrote.

Lili Reinhart then chimed in with the best comeback of all, writing "I would've pummeled both of you pussies". Lol.

In light of how drastically different these boys looked when they were actually in high school, we decided to find out what every Riverdale actor really looked like when they were the same age as their on-screen counterparts.
