In brief: Bottom
The first tooth erupts from center of lower gum around 6 months of age in most infants.

In brief: Normally Bottom
It is not a set in stone rule but normally the bottom two centrals, then the top 4.
.Ish then the other bottom two to the sides of the first, then 1st molar, then canines, then 2nd molars. All spread out over about 2.5-3years.
