My guess is ~18-20, based on my interpretation of this guide:

There is a dental star on all the teeth, which is pretty very rounded and well centered. In addition, the grinding surface is starting to get fairly triangular, but the central incisors are still somewhat rounded.

The angle of the tooth doesn't look too far forward yet, and the Galvayne's groove doesn't yet extend the entire length of the tooth.

Pssh.I didn't pick up the wrong lead
It's called a counter canter...
...A very advanced maneuver.

I have to agree as well. The galvayne's groove is not quite extended all the way down the tooth, so he's got to be in the 18 year range.
