Such a condition is caused by an imbalance between the size of the tooth and size of ur jaw arch and results in partially erupted teeth. It is normal unless it is causing you discomfort or you feel food gets accumulated or you have a developing cheek biting habit. In that case, its better to extract them surgically

Yes its normal, depends upon the path of eruption and space available for them to come out. Commonly wisdom tooth is of no use. Better to get removed

Its normal just get an OPG X-ray and show your local dentist to advise if they need to be removed or guided to come out in the right direction and position in the mouth.
