In brief: No problem

Not an issue. They will come in when they are ready.
Rarely some 2nd teeth may be absent genetically, and that can only be determined by dental x-rays.

In brief: How does gum look?

If the front gum area is looking raised (sometimes lighter color from pressure) like teeth underneath trying to push through, that is normal.
Occasionally, the gum tissue is very dense and the teeth cannot push through, so your dentist can perform a minor gum procedure to open them up to allow eruption. See your dentist to make an accurate determination.
