Every : Every child has a different eruption pattern, some children start teething sonner than others. Nothing you can do about it, so don't worry.

No: Eruption times vary greatly so there is no need to worry at this point.

Not at all: Your child is well within normal limits. You can't speed-up or slow-down timing. Mother nature does that herself. As soon as 1st tooth erupts call a pediatric dental specialist (for same reasons you see pediatrician instead of gp) for 1st exam, hygiene/diet/fluoride instructions, jaws and tooth growth evaluation, and to allow bonding between your child and the pedodontist.

Not yet: The timing of eruption varies widely. No tooth until 13 months of age is called delayed dentition.
