According to Macrumors, the younger Malik was consistently able to unlock his mother's iPhone X without any failure. He also unlocked his dad's phone too. However according to them, it was derived partly from the fact of the sensors of Face ID merely checking certain part of the features on a face. A Wired report on the video notes that the son was able to do this upon picking up the phone for the first time.
