I have had various puppies with base narrow bottom canines at 8 to 10 weeks. It is not a serious issue unless the adult teeth come in and they are still base narrow and are poking into the roof of the mouth.
If the puppy is young and still has its deciduous teeth, yes, it is true that the lower and upper jaws grow at different rates, and all of my pups that had mild base narrow canines at their 8 week checkup outgrew it and it self-corrected.
Unless you want to spend a lot of money visiting a dental specialist, I would recommend, IF your puppy still has it's deciduous teeth, to wait until the adult teeth come in.
