Core of a star

Explanation: Star cluster NGC 346 is embedded in the largest star forming region in the Small Magellanic Cloud, some 210,000 light-years distant. The massive stars of NGC 346 are short lived, but very energetic. Their winds and radiation sweep out an interstellar cavern in the gas and dust cloud about 200 light-years across, triggering star formation and sculpting the region's dense inner edge. Cataloged as N66, the star forming region also appears to contain a large population of infant stars. A mere 3 to 5 million years old and not yet burning hydrogen in their cores, the infant stars are strewn about the embedded star cluster. In the false-color Hubble Space Telescope image, visible and near-infrared light are seen as blue and green, while light from atomic hydrogen emission is red.
Response to above: The core of a star in my opinion does no burn hydrogen. The highly dense plasma slowly releases new form hydrogen that fuses creating the secondary burn on the surface. The creation of the core can have many origins (1) matter collecting and tranforming into high dense plasma or (2) by a blackhole ejecting the high dense plasma. Plus other means. The life span will depend on the size of the core.

Is that just an opinion of yours?

How would that explain the Helium content of stars?

Helium is formed from the fusion of Hydrogen. Giving us the super hydrogen bombs on the surface of the star.
Carbon is formed from the fusion of Helium.

I don't see how your theory explains the H ions to He ratio of the solar winds, the cooled state of brown dwarfs, the seismic and acoustic resonance of the Sun, the mechanics of a pulsar, along with other concepts that don't fit in with a conventional model of a star. Please elaborate.

What part of the idea are you refering to?

Lets start with:
A mere 3 to 5 million years old and not yet burning hydrogen in their cores
.

Are you referring to stars or proto stars?

The question is: How can Hydrogen burn?
An ageing star builds up material around itself.
When this material is ejected away.How do you date the core? If the core is of extreme density with extreme gravitational forces?
Our dating of stars is only what we can see.
When we have a recycle process dating becomes difficult?
When we date 5 to 10 million years its not the correct time stamp.
I don't mean to be difficult i just want to cover all bases.
How does matter transform into Electromagnetic Radiation particels and compresses into a high density plasma and how does ER transforms to matter (eg Hydrogen) outside the core of a star is the question? Must have something to do with the extreme gravitational forces.
