I would need to have the jaw in my hands to get a solid idea on age, but from the pictures I agree with 8 POINTS; at least 4 1/2 and maybe 5 1/2.

4th tooth (1st permanent molar) is dished, but look at the 6th tooth. Not only does it still have sharp crests, the dentine is not wider than the enamel.

is it just me or is the dentine 2 shades of brown, darker in the center. Looks to me like dentine is a lot wider than enamel

I think I have a photo with the flash on that may provide a better perspective. Are you guys looking at the top view or side view?

I'd go 5.5... enough wear on the last molar to justify that, but not quite enough cupping on the first molar to say 6.5
