In brief: Minor jaw pain

If it persists please have your dentist evaluate this.

In brief: Probably not

Need to have a history.
Have you have minor jaw pain before, without a cold? Are things different this time with a cold- eating different, sleeping differently (positions, ) snoring or having problems breathing at night. See someone while answer these questions and more.

In brief: No

No the eustschian tube which runs from the ear is near the tmj, sometimes if this becomes clogged or stuffy from a cold you can get some jaw discomfort.

In brief: Depends

Upper jaw and upper tooth pain could be explained by an infection of the maxillary (upper jaw) sinus.
If you have a sore throat, could be some referred pain from throat of tongue to jaw. Would not get TMJ pain with cold. If pain persists after cold resolves, see oral surgeon
