The fact that Genesis 5:32 lists the order as Shem, Ham, and Japheth (the same order is in every other verse that mentions them together) does not mean that this is the birth order. They could be listed based on importance. For instance, Abraham is listed first of the sons of Terah, but he was not born first. Furthermore, Genesis 9:24 says Ham was Noah’s younger son, not necessarily the youngest.
