Usually wisdom tooth erupts around 17-25 years of age but sometimes there may be a delayed eruption and sometimes in few patients wisdom tooth doesn't erupt at all. Just to get rid of any confusion get a dental X-ray done.
You need to get an OPG Xray done so that the exact position of all your wisdom teeth can be ascertained. Sometimes they can get stuck in the jaw bone itself & sometimes they can be mal-aligned causing damage to the adjacent tooth. So its better to consult a dentist.
