In brief: Yes

4 teeth is average for a 1 year old but as long as your 17 mo old has teeth she is normal.

In brief: Yes

Although most children have more teeth at that age, having only 4 is not unusual and is normal.
There is a strong possibility that your child will lose their teeth later than their friends, but this is also not a problem.
