Third molar eruption

Sir Greetings My son aged 2 yrs (b:20/1/2014) is developing third molar's. As such he is not displaying any maladies but as parents we are concerned as to he having almost all his teeth prematurely. He is also underweight at 11kgs and short stature at ~81 cms. Please advise us if our concern mentioned above needs to be addressed clinically. Thanks Harmeek

Hello there....can understand your concern about your son....but just to add to your knowledge ...there are no third molars in children...it must be a milk tooth called second deciduous molar...need not to worry... If possible, please upload a picture of it so that the exact situation can be understood... Take care...!!!
