How old was your child when they got there first tooth??

My Baby is almost 9 months old and still has not got his first tooth. He keeps acting like its going to come in but it never does. Should I be worried?

    Mine cut teeth early but my god daughter didn't cut her first tooth til 14 months old. Nothing to worry about the dr. told her mom its better to cut them late because its less milk decay on the teeth.
