extra tooth growing in roof of mouth

Hi, I have recently noticed what seems to be an extra incisor growing in on the roof of my mouth, behind my other teeth. Is this something to worry about, and what causes it?

Yes this is a problem this means you still have a baby tooth that never fell out so the adult tooth is now coming in behind it.  I know from experience so my suggestion is to get the baby tooth pulled asap before the adult tooth comes through behind it

The baby tooth did fall out, though. I still have some molars that haven't fallen out but this is not a molar.

It's probbly a supernemeray tooth, which is commonly located between 2 cental incisors.Seeing a dentist to remove it is advised.
