If you're caught you could be made to pay a penalty fare (if applicable). You could also end up being prosecuted and receive a criminal conviction.

As Vapordave points out, the 16-17 Saver railcard (https://www.16-17saver.co.uk/) will give you the same 50% discount that a child aged 5-15 gets. It does cost £30, though, so you'd need to consider whether you use the train enough to justify this.
