Your little son is rather slow with his teeth but the rest of his first set of teeth will appear.

Glad to hear I''m not the only one with a toothless baby. My 15 month old only just cut her 6th tooth.

No. Babies teethe at different rates.

My son got his first tooth at 11 months and did not have a full set till well after all his friends. He is 7 now and was the last child in his class to lose a baby tooth too.
Whether you are an early or late teether seems to run in families.

Getting teeth is not an indicator of intelligence or a developmental milestone - they just grow at different rates in different people.
