If you're a teen in the United States you're going to need your parent's consent before you sign any contracts. If you're under 18 (unless you're emancipated and living on your own), you're going to have to include your parents in your decision to get an agent and model.

Always ensure you have the support of your parents/guardian. Modeling often involves travel, especially if you don't live in a large city where there is more work. Also be very careful of the websites you find on the web, not all have high standards, so be really particular about who you are dealing with. If you at all uncertain ask your parents or guardian for advice.
