Is this a Maine Coon?
Is there anyone out there who knows Maine Coons really well who can confirm or reject our theory that this (rather large for only 5 months) kitten is possibly at least part Maine Coon?
We are certain he's about 5 months, based on tooth growth. He had both adult fangs fully grown(ish) on his lower jaw last week, as well as milk fangs still, which he lost over the weekend, and his upper adult fangs are about halfway in. At least one baby molar is also gone.
This curly floof on his neck and chest extends pretty much over his entire belly, but his arms and back are more medium hair length. It's super silky too, but I suppose that could just be because he's still a kitten.
He has major between-the-toe floof as well on both front and back paws.
And major tail floof, though I wouldn't describe it as 'heavily-furred' necessarily.
