Teething can happen at any age, I've even heard of kids born with teeth! He may just be too young for the teether and it might take some time to get used to. Most kids I know who use a teether need to hold it themselves and at four months they're just not ready for that. Try some teething gel, I like the Little Remedies/Teethers brand and some infant tylenol before bed might help
Remember every baby is different

My daughter has just turned 10months. She's been teething since she was 3months. She still has no teeth and some nights are bad and some are good she chews everything now. I give her a frozen teething ring and she always loved it. If it gets really bad don't be scared to give baby nurofen. Hope it all goes well.

My son wouldn't take regular teethers. I had to get him the Raz Baby Raz Berry teether pacifier (Just FYI, I have only been able to find these at the Babies'R'Us stores and website). That works, especially if they are attached to a pacifier anyways. He also started teething at 3 months and didn't get his first two teeth until 11 1/2 months. So it can take a while. I have heard that the longer they go w/o getting their teeth, the stronger their teeth will be. Infant's Tylenol and Baby Orajel work great. Though I would try not to give them very much of either of those as babies need to learn a little bit of pain tolerance. There will be some fussing, no doubt, just make your little one as comfortable as possible whether or not you gave them medicine.

My daughter is 5 months and has been teething for the past 3 weeks. I asked the doctor and he said it perfectly normal to start this early and the time may vary on when the first tooth actually comes in. He said to expect it to take a month to 2 months for the tooth to actually break. At first she didnt take her teether but now she take it and everything else in sight to chew on. I have been using this natural teething gel and she really likes it as well as giving her some tylenol right before bed. You can try the tablets or ora gel and see how that works for you.
