In brief: Pointy teeth

All teeth are "pointy" when they erupt.
If they are still pointy at your age than they are not contacting when you bite - it is this contact that wears down the points and gives a more rounded appearance as you age.

In brief: Good Occlusion

Or bite can protect the dentition during function.
If teeth don't properly interdigitate, they can traumatize each other causing it to craze, get facets.., and fracture at some point due to interferences. When you said "almos all my teeth", it means you can be a lucky 47 year old person.
