It's either "Jeg er yngst" or "Jeg er den yngste".

Does using den change the connotation?

I wouldn't say so, but beware that the double determination would be required if "the youngest" were followed by a noun:

"Jeg er den yngste gutten her."
"I'm the youngest boy here."

Is it the same as "I am young"?
