see https://www.catholicworldreport.com/2020/01/11/why-did-jesus-bother-to-be-baptized/

"Why did Jesus bother to be baptized? After all, He was sinless… And, indeed, today’s Gospel readily acknowledges that John the Baptist was taken aback by his cousin’s request to be baptized: ‘I need to be baptized by you, and yet you are coming to me?’”

This article gives good reasons for His baptism.
