No. He is perfect. Mistakes by nature are imperfect. It is not Man's nature to make mistakes. It is Man's nature to have reason and free will. It is fallen man's nature to make mistakes.

Considering He knew all, making errors in the sciences would be impossible., yet loves us and gave us free will and reason so that we may choose to love Him and by happy with Him forever and who is willing to forgive us as long as we seek it.

Jesus did not make "mistakes".
Gosh, is there anything you're not an expert in?

By the way, being swayed by the serpent and eating the fruit was done by man before the fall. It was a mistake. How does that work?

Catechism says,
Quote:472 This human soul that the Son of God assumed is endowed with a true human knowledge. As such, this knowledge could not in itself be unlimited: it was exercised in the historical conditions of his existence in space and time. This is why the Son of God could, when he became man, "increase in wisdom and in stature, and in favor with God and man" ,and would even have to inquire for himself about what one in the human condition can learn only from experience.This corresponded to the reality of his voluntary emptying of himself, taking "the form of a slave".
Emphasis added.

How can one increase in wisdom if one is already omniscient ?


I tend to agree with the Church on this one, too. It is a mystery of Faith that Jesus has two Natures, one human, one Divine, each completely separate, yet each inseparably intertwined.
