Thanks for posting on XXXXXXX

It seems to me you are developing Wisdom tooth which usually grows between the age of 16-25 years. Usually painful and you may feel a swelling around where it is growing. If the tooth grows inappropriately or wrong insertion, it might cause you some worry. But since it is not painful, I do not feel you should worry.
Wisdom tooth is normal final tooth growth.

Hope this helps and wish you the best.
