Is it okay for a baby to have the top teeth first before the bottom ones

I have a 6months old baby boy who has started teething with the upper teeth first, is something abnormal about him, my other 2 boys had the bottom teeth first. I am so worried, are there any mothers out there who have experienced such.

All babies are different. I've seen babies born with a set of 8 baby teeth (weird, but true). It's just a matter of which teeth are growing in faster. I don't think you have anything to worry about. If he goes a long time without getting the other teeth, then I would see a dentist. They can x-ray his mouth to see what's going on under his gums, but I wouldn't worry about that for awhile.
