The first and the second teenager in the line. The first and second teenager in the line. What is the difference between these sentences?

Nothing, really. The use of the second 'the' is unnecessary. I would use the second sentence.

Neither are sentences, and both are both grammatically incorrect.  There are two teenagers, so you need an S on teenager.
