PLots hole? Imortality? Babies?
While a baby might not develop or age anymore, that means, a embryo shouldn't either..
So anyone affected by the ageless fog.. would essentially turn permanent infertiles.
So the world stopped, no one died, no one gave birth like a videogame with set characters that is the current world, unchanging.
But what about plants and animals, are they affected too?
Maybe not since they said birds keep making nests inside the chimneys
And my question is.. what about amputation? and removal of vital organs? like the heart or brain?

Anyway as you said the fog simply leaves living beings' bodies as they were at the time they came in contact with the fog.
Another thing i am not sure about that is how exactly does it work? Because in the 4th chapter you can see a man cutting off his own hand which then comes back from a sort of myst. But you can't see if that myst is made of the cutted hand's matter or does it come from something/somewhere else? I assume that this "myst" is not made of the cutted hand's matter because it would mean people not to be able to get food from living beings and it's said in the manga that people are still able to feed themself thanks to seaweeds and such.
Also they say they can't feed themself anymore on animals but it's contradictory with the fact that they can eat plants as both are living things so i assume this means they just dont want to torture those animals by continuously cutting them into pieces knowing they wont die.
Or another possibility is that the one who created that manga just does not bother that much about such details ^^

Oh, like that would stop anyone. Look at what we do to, f'rinstance, chickens already now.
Hmmm . . . theoretically, you wouldn't be able to starve to death either, although refusing to eat still might not be fun. There has to be some kind of threshold for the mist's action . . . so when starvation was starting to noticeably damage you, you'd get healed from it.
Wonder if it's possible to change your physical condition at all? Like, would you gain muscle from exercise? Is it possible to lose weight?
. . . can you pierce your ears? I guess circumcision is out, although if babies stay babies forever that doesn't matter much. Might have to change some laws . . . after 18 or so years you'd have these babies who theoretically would be allowed to vote, drink, and drive a car. Although I suppose drinking wouldn't do them any harm. And neither would car accidents. And they probably couldn't make a worse mess of voting than the adults do . . . never mind, carry on, no legal changes needed. I think they really would stay babies forever, though--before about 1 year, babies don't have structures in the brain that let them form long term memories. They can sort of learn things, but not the kind of things involved in, say, reading and remembering what you read.
. . . I wonder if kids frozen just before puberty would become politically and intellectually influential? They'd have time to learn and gain adult understanding, but they wouldn't be distracted by sex.
Now having read the chapters available . . . Well, the manga answers some of the questions.
Right at the beginning it establishes that you can't starve to death, but if you don't eat you end up lacking energy.
As of ch. 4, it says that people who were injured when the mist came don't heal, sick people stay sick, pregnant women stay pregnant.
I notice that with people being invulnerable, the culture seems to have drifted into an acceptance of casual violence and bullying. I mean, Cynthia's just vicious, but lots of other people seem to do it too.

Yeah that's a bit disturbing but kind of funny though, like the scene where Paze gets crushed by a motorbike and he apologizes to the biker as if he stepped on someone's foot.
