In that case I guess all of his teeth are baby teeth. The temporary set of corner incisors comes in at 6-9 months, but that doesn't tell you anything you don't already know unless they haven't grown down far enough for the top set to touch the bottom set ("in wear"), and I don't think anything else really comes in until the 2nd molar at 2 years, and then the center set of permanent incisors would come in around 2 1/2. Assuming he doesn't have the 2nd molar (which I don't think you'd be able to take a photo of, but the vet should be able to feel for) that still gives you a wide range of anywhere from 6 months to 2 years.

They are milk teeth, and I would say he is around 2 years old. He will loose the central teeth when he is around 2.5 years.
You cannot exactly pinpoint their age, to the month but, I would say that the old owners were telling you the truth about his age.
