The 6 year molars, also known as the first adult molars, typically come in at ages 6 or 7 years old. If they are coming in at age 2, this is far out of the normal range. The very first thing i would recommend would be an appointment with a children's specialist called a pedodontist to verify that indeed, what you see are the first molars.

But have a pediatric dentist check him to make sure these are actually his permanent teeth. It would be amazing that at his age he has enough room at two years old for the secondary first molars.
