It will probably close up, but there is no guarantee that it will stay that way once his adult teeth come in. I had no gap between my baby teeth as a chlid (don't know about when I was a baby), but when my adult teeth came in, I had a gap. I had to have braces to get rid of it.

She doesn't even have all her baby teeth yet, so they'll move around quite a bit even in the next few months. When my son got his front top teeth I was actually horrified, because they looked really buck-toothy and one was sticking forward. (even though I know appearances shouldn't matter, he was so gorgeous before it was a shock to see such strange teeth) Well, in a month they had already straightened somewhat and now he's 2 and gets compliments on his teeth all the time.

Also, there are gaps between all of his teeth - that's how baby teeth are.

These gaps will close up when all teeth are in place as teeth move around to fit in all teeth regularly hence the jaw ache. This gap will vanish around the age of 2 when the back teeth grow up pushing all the teeth forward. Nothing to worry about.

Possibly, but possibly not. Those are still her baby teeth, so there's really no way to tell what things will look like as she grows. Even with adult teeth, things can change. When my adult front teeth first came in, I had a gap between them. The gap was there until I was about 10 or so, but then started to slowly close as my other adult teeth came in. By the time I was 13, the gap was completely gone.
