Thrush? is it common that babys gums where potential teeth are coming in are white?

My son doesn't have white patches on tongue or on cheeks or on top of mouth but his gums underneath, not on sides are white, is this teeth or thrush?

  • I'd put money on it being teeth. You can sometimes feel a little bump where the white is. Is he trying to bite on everything he gets his hands on? And is he drooling a whole lot?
