See if milk tooth is present and  permanent tooth erupts then their are high chances that permanent tooth won't have proper position to erupt. It will eventually lead to malocclusion. So it's better to go for extraction of decidious tooth or milk tooth. Consult with doctor online or offline for better guidance and treatment options.

It will be better if you visit your dentist, because as such without seeing the kid, it is difficult to assume that the teeth are in correct position or not. But surely the milk tooth should be moving by now or about to fall, if not then visit dental clinic.

Depending upon the age of the patient, the treatment would be decided. If the milk teeth are at the age of falling off, they can be left like that or else they need to be extracted since can block the eruption of permanent teeth and disturb the position of all teeth. Kindly get a consultation done.

If the milk toooth is not moving then you'll need to get the milk tooth removed. It will not allow the permanent tooth to come in the normal alignment.
