In brief: Yes
Although rare, it can happen.
Some of the possible causes are buerger's disease (blockage of small arteries related to smoking), vasculitis, severe raynauds disease (vasospasm from cold exposure), collagen vascular disease, embolism, popliteal entrapment or popliteal adventitial cystic disease.

In brief: Yes
Vessels can be blocked by trauma or congenital problems like popliteal artery entrapment or thoracic outlet syndrome.
Pad is rare in this age group. Juvenile diabetics are at increased risk.
