In brief: See a good Dentist

Baby teeth are different from permanent teeth.
The enamel is thinner and can be more translucent. Given you are asking this question, you should go see your dentist and get a good solid opinion.

In brief: Primary teeth are

Anatomically & physiologically different from permanent teeth.
The enamel is thinner, less mineralized & more translucent. The teeth are paler & very susceptible to cavities when babies & toddlers are allowed to fall asleep with a bottle or to drink milk & other sugary liquids off & on during the day from bottles or sippy cups. If he didn't see a pediatric dentist at a year, now's the time.

In brief: See a dentist

At 19 mos, usually does not have last 4 second year molars.
Translucent teeth can indicate a problem with the development of noral teeth enamel. You should see a pediatric dentist. Sometimes medications and/or diet can also affect the enamel and color and strength of the teeth.
