Hi. Welcome to Just Answer. My name is***** Thank you for your question. This is a situation where there are unknowns here, but overall I wouldn't be that worried. Those missing teeth from the comb, they are not really that sharp and big of foreign material in the grand scheme of things. There is a chance none were actually swallowed as they were broken off with chewing and then lost somewhere. If they were eaten, they could just pass benignly through the intestinal tract. These little one's are known for getting into things and I've seen similar situations where things like rocks, hair pins, paper clips, etc... were eaten and then pass through benignly. Watching for any vomiting, loss of appetite for over 24 hours or abdominal discomfort would be possible signs of an issue. I wouldn't be overly worried about this.
