Very not right tooth - will it correct?

I just looked in the back of Phrixus' mouth, and found that his right rear largest top molar is completely pointed backwards. honestly it looks healthy other than there is nothing pointed down. I'll try to take a picture but since all his teeth are a little over sized for his mouth, and he's only now 6 months old, I'm wondering if there is anything to be done? He honestly didn't start teething until nearly 5 months - so things aren't really solid. Does he have an issue that needs fixing or should it correct? He's eating a deer neck right now, so I can't say that he's got a problem eating =)

Have a vet check him...deer necks are dense. I don't know if I'd feed that to a teething pup. Could be the reason he has the dental problem?

he hadn't eaten raw until about two weeks ago - he's 80lbs and 1/4 st bernard 1/4 great pyrenees - he's got a reason for dental issues - his teeth are WAY bigger than his head can allow at the moment.

If he has problems like this due to his size and growth, a veterinary assessment woukdn't be a bad idea?
