Hi there, @JoeytheGreat513! Making sure you're able to enjoy your VR experience to the fullest is definitely a priority for us, and we absolutely understand wanting to have your son's progress depicted on the correct account! That said, currently, purchased content and game data are not able to be transferred between accounts, and we do not have the ability to do that here on our side. One option would be to change your existing Meta account into a child’s Meta account with the steps here, however, keep in mind that this would make the account a youth account with all of the same age restrictions. Should you choose to do that, we highly recommend removing any social media or parent-managed account that you have linked first, to avoid any age flags on those accounts. To unlink a social media account, simply log into your Meta Accounts Center, click 'Accounts' to the left, and click 'Remove' on the appropriate account. You will likely need to create a new Meta account for yourself to manage the child account from there, if this is what you would like to do. This is irreversible, so please be sure to fully check out what that entails. We hope this helps and is able to clear up the situation a bit more for you. Should any further issues pop up, please don't hesitate to reach back out!
