In brief: Need to be seen

Hard to say from the info you gave.
Could be peg lateral. Take him to the dentist.

In brief: Varies.

This is something that is hard to determine without knowing more information.
Your sons age, developmental history, eruption of other teeth, trauma .... Etc.

In brief: Could be microdont

If it is fully erupted and does not appear to have decay or fracture, but is small and pointed it is possible that it is a microdont (small tooth).
If so it would only need cosmetic work to fix. It may be an extra tooth as well. See a dentist for treatment options.
