Puppy's age - weeks vs months

I know there was a thread about this a couple of months ago, but I can't find it, so all help would be useful:)

My puppy was born on June 4. That would mean he'd be one month old on July 4th, right? But if you count weeks, he turns 4 weeks old tomorrow. So I'm confused about how people count their puppy's ages.

Is there a certain point where, when asked how old your dog is, you say in terms of months? [ex. after he turns one year old, he's "one year, one month" instead of 56 weeks?]

OMG I just realized today that I've been wrong about how old my dog is. I've been counting every 4 weeks is a month. So for instance, my Golden was born on May 19th 2022 and I counted every 4 weeks as months so I celebrated his 6 month birthday on November 3rd!!! And apparently he wasn't 6 months until November 19th!?!? I just can't wrap my head around this lol. So every month on the 19th he is another month older? It makes no sense as some months have 5 weeks and months are different amount of days 30 & 31.. I dunno, maybe I'm just dense lol.
