    Have some ways to check

    1. Use to isNaN() function (best way)

     This function returns true if the value is not a number and false is number.

     var age = null
    isNaN(age) // return false
    var age = "age";
    isNaN(age) // return false
    var age ="20";
    isNaN(age) // return true
    var age = 20
    isNaN(age) // return true 


    2. Use to typeof to check the data type of value

     var age = 21;
    if(typeof(age) === "number"){
      // To do something here


    3. Use to regex to check 

     function isNumber(val) { return /^-?[\d.]+(?:e-?\d+)?$/.test(val); } 
    isNumber(null); // false
    isNumber("1"); // true
    isNumber(1); // true
    isNumber("123abc"); // false
    isNumber("abc"); // false
    isNumber(true); // false
    isNumber(false); // false
