I just had a child 2 days ago do, can I click yes I do have children?

I know its 2017 taxes and I didn't technically have a child in 2017 but the question is do I support a child now?

Answer NO, as the child was not born yet in 2017.

In the very beginning it asks "do you support or have any children."

For the beginning questions, it is best to answer the questions based on your situation on December 31. Answering yes, will take you on a different line of questioning that would not apply to your 2017 tax return.
