Teething can happen anytime during the first year. Average may be 7 months old for the first tooth, but some babies get their first much sooner like 4 months old or even earlier, and others don't get their first until their first birthday. I wouldn't start worrying about this yet. Also - another indicator may be how old you were when you got your first tooth… or how old your son's Dad was when he got his first tooth. If the grandparents are around to ask, and they remember…. It's not a perfect answer, but genetics do play a role in when development happens.
