Question Looking to build child new gaming pc; what do you think of this setup?

Being a small form factor there is less space for airflow. At least get a better cooler than that Intel stock.

I would do something like this...

This is a pretty a decent pc but if i were you i wouldnt go and purchase a 2666mhz ram for 85 usd. Theres alot of 2666mhz selling for $50
Heres a list of 2666mhz ram 16gb for cheap price 600561671 601386107 600006072&Order=1&nm_mc=AFC-RAN-COM&cm_mmc=AFC-RAN-COM&utm_medium=affiliates&utm_source=afc-Future+Publishing+Ltd&AFFID=2294204&AFFNAME=Future+Publishing+Ltd&ACRID=1&ASUBID=tomshardware-row-6772471710204900000&ASID=
Btw as a 15 year old alot of my friends play alot of games and a 500gb ssd is going to make your childs pc full storage in a month. Make sure you throw in a 1tb hdd for your child to download more games.
edit: oops i forgot that the i5 10400 can only support 2666mhz ram. My bad ;p
