An unknown boy in your dream may represent your child self, the part of you that needs to be carefree and likes to have fun.

Sometimes unknown children in dreams can represent a project or something else in your life that requires your attention and focus, something that – like a child – is not yet fully developed.

A boy can also be an undeveloped aspect of your own personality, specifically undeveloped male qualites such as your assertiveness and ability to make firm decisions.
