Very common, a lot of people never develop wisdom teeth. There is nothing wrong with you, it's just the way some people are. If you mean that you actually don't have them when you are little, you aren't supposed to have wisdom teeth buds yet.

You have 25 % chances of being born with one or more wisdom teeth missing.

Yes its possible not to have wisdom teeth, I don't have them. I've found resources saying its a fairly common occurance but I'm not sure about this since my dentist xrayed me two more times when he noticed the absense and then doubled checked with me to see if I'd had them removed. Yes some people are born without wisdom teeth, but it's not something that is happening recently, it it something that happened during human evolution. In fact, every person has 25% chances of being born without at least one wisdom tooth. Rarely, some people are born with all four wisdom teeth missing.

32 if you count wisdom teeth, also called 3rd molars 28 if you are born without wisdom teeth or have them removed due to lack of room

Frogs don't have mandibular teeth, they swallow their food whole. However, I did read that they have seen cases that some frogs are regrowing mandibular teeth. Evolution in progress. Not sure about how many though. It's like humans being born without wisdom teeth. Not common but does happen.
