1st option is wait till he is 13 yrs ...n than get his ortho treatment done...his teeth may not be aligned due to less space for the teeth to erupt

did not understand the second half of your question. by not in order what do you mean? often a parents judgment is more critical than required. at age 9 your son is in the 'MIXED DENTITION'stage. stone permanent some milk teeth. This tends to look disorderly. Make sure he keeps his teeth clean. Get a dental visit soon to put your mind at ease.
