18 month Boy and no teeth

My friend has an 18 month old boy and he has no teeth yet.  His teeth appear to be under the gums but aren't dropping. Your thoughts?

My only thought is that this is something better addressed by a pediatric dentist. There may be many reasons why they have not erupted, but only the dentist will be able to give a definitive answer.

For those of you who worry about your 18 month old not having teeth, here is my story:
We were waiting for our son to teeth from when he was about 6 months old..when he was 10 months old i started noticing the gums getting harder and a white teeth like thing inside..we were so happy and was waiting for the teeth to pop out any minute..he turned 1,still no teeth..everytime he will bite hard on something, we would eagerly wait to see if the teeth is gonna come out..@ his 15 month doctor visit the doc. said he will get it..it is not a very common thing in infants,but he will get it..he was 16,17,18 months..no TEETH..we finally took him to a pediatric dentist and took an x-ray.The x-ray showed that there were about 8 teeths inside but they were just not coming out...huh..again we waited,waited and hoped and prayed..he is 21 months old and finally a couple of tooths have popped out...god..it is such a big relief!!!
