Sources:

1a.  Census Index:  U.S. Selected Counties, 1790 (Broderbund CD-311):
1790 Ely, Daniel PA Berks Co. Reading Borough p. 39
Generally, one has to be married to show up as a head-of-household in the census.  Assuming the minimum age to marry is 18, Daniel would have to have been born before 1772.

1b.  Family Quest Archives:  Pennsylvania Federal Census 1790:  Berks, Chester, Delaware, Huntingdon, Mifflin (part), Luzerne, Dauphin, Northampton, Cumberland, Fayette, Westmoreland (part), Bucks, and Lancaster Counties.  Heritage Quest CD M637-8 (extracted by Diana Gale Matthiesen):
1790 PA Berks Co. Borough of Reading p. 1 Daniel Ely 2-1-1-0-0
These data indicate:
Gender and Type Age Class Therefore Born Individuals Inferred
2 free white males 16 or over in or bef. 1774 = Daniel
= Son A
1 free white male 15 or under 1774-1790 = Son B
1 free white female all ages in or bef. 1790 = Wife
The question here is whether "Son A" is their son or some other male (e.g., hired help).  If he is their son, then this is the picture of an older couple with their last two, youngest children still in the household.  If "Son A" is not their son, then it is the picture of a newly wed couple with their first child.
