No, don't worry. Are you sure all the other children have all 20 of theirs? As it is the back ones that come in last, you wouldn't notice unless you deliberately looked into their mouths. DS was 24-26 months when he got these last 4, if its any consolation.

Is it the canines (third along) that are missing? These are often quite late coming through.

Yes, you generally get a premolar before the canines.
