I heard a Dvar Torah regarding the 3 sons of Noach, according to which it would indicate that they were triplets. Are there any commentaries that indicate that Shem Cham and Yafes were triplets?

Rashi to Bereishit 10:21 says that Yafet was two years older than Shem.
Although it is a dispute among the different Rishonim which one was older, the Pasuk (11:10) that says Shem was a hundred years old two years after the Mabul strongly implies that the others were not the same age.
So I guess my contribution to the answer is that it isn't just Rashi on that verse, and on the verse which introduce them in the order of Shem, Cham and Yafes, that sites their ages, and they don't say triplets.
That doesn't exclude learning that they are triplets, but it makes it difficult. It is completely incompatible with Rashi (not just his opinion, but his whole approach to 11:10), for what that is worth.
