I have two 4/5 month old ratties who are boys and Russian blue dumbos, I really would like another rat as a friend for them but what age should it be and would they get along?

I think any age should get along as long as you introduce them correctly, although some say older rats get along with younger rats better so you can try to get an older boy: Using Baby Steps to Introduce Rats to Rats - JoinRats

If your really worried they might not get along you can try to find a rescue or breeder near you that will allow you to return the rat if it doesn't get along. Also, if you talk to a rescue they'll tell you which of their rats they think will get along easily with other rats
