In brief: Could be a problem
I would make sure he has a visit to the dentist.
May need x-rays and certainly needs an exam. Ounce of prevention here coulld be worth a pound of cure and a bank vault full of money. Get it checked.

In brief: Dental problem?
Permanent teeth start at age six but if your child has intact teeth at age 9 he must have good teeth or started late in teething.
Pls consult a dentist.

You really should see an orthodontist, a cranio-facial growth and development specialist, for differential diagnosis.
