In brief: Probably not

Generally, there is enough room; if not, discomfort or pain is more likely because the positioning is wrong.

In brief: Crowding

This is a much debated topic, and there exists plenty of support both for and against wisdom teeth contributing to crowding of your teeth.
However, general consensus currently is that wisdom teeth do contribute to anterior crowding, especially in the lower jaw. Keep in mind, many other factors also contribute to crowding of your anterior teeth.

In brief: Not enough room

In many cases there is insufficient space for wisdom teeth to fully erupt into the mouth.
In these cases, soft tissue infections, damage to adjacent teeth, and occasionally crowding of other teeth can occur.
