He has two that have been peeking out for what seems like forever now. Is this ok?

hey my sons first tooth didnt come through until he was 10 months
give it a couple more months and is he doesnt have any by about 15 months take him to a dentist just to get his gums checked my niece didnt have any until she was 16 months because he gums were to tough for her teeth to cut through and once she had the first to lanced to come put the rest came popping out all at once

as a former dental ast I say dont worry its not as uncommon as you think plus the later they get there teeth the later they loose them and thats actually good the longer the permanet teeth stay under the gums the stronger they typicaly are

My friends daughter's first tooth didn't come out until 13 months and then the next week she had 2 teeth and the week after that 3 so usually the ones who get teeth "later" tend to get them all at once. It's normal so don't worry. :)

I would not worry :) I knew a girl who's son did not get his first tooth until he was 14 months old. Every baby is different and I'm sure your lil man will pop one out soon :) My son only has two and he is 10 months. He did not get his first until about a month ago. I was stating to worry and right about then....there was a tooth :)
