newborn teeth buds indicate teeth position?

Not accurately: The ability to see a tooth bud (on a radiograph) is a good indicator that a tooth will form. Many factors determine a tooth's eventual position. Your dentist should be able to give you a good idea early on if your child will have malposed teeth that require treatment.
